What is a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are sites that provide medical attention for routine ailments and injuries. You don't need to book an appointment ahead of time or be registed with a doctor at a walk-in centre. You will, however, need to queue which can be time consuming. Push Doctor offers a more simple sollution, allowing you to video call with trained GPs from your home.
What services do walk-in centres have?
Walk-in centres aren't suitable for emergency treatment, but can help in a number of situations, including:including:-
- Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms
- Skin conditions
- Stomach upsets
- Asthma and other breathing problems
- Back pain
- Ear, eye and throat infection
- Cuts, strains and sprains
Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Yes, you can visit a walk-in centre without any previous notice or booking in advance. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment. You don’t need an appointment to go to a walk-in centre, but you will need to wait until a healthcare professional has time to see you, which could be a few hours if the centre is particularly busy.
What's the alternative to a walk-in centre?
If you need non-emergency healthcare support, Push Doctor can give you the help and advice you need without long waits or needing to travel to busy walk-in centres. All our GPs have been NHS-trained and are fully qualified to prescribe medication, all over video chat, meaning you'll never need to leave your home to see a doctor.
