What is a walk-in centre?
If you have a minor injury, you can visit a walk-in centre instead of a hospital or your GP. The benefit of a walk-in centre is that patients do not need to be registered with the facility or a GP to receive care at the 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.

Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Yes, provided your local walk-in centre is open, you can go whenever you need to. Opening hours, however, vary from centre to centre, meaning you’ll need to go at a time when you can be seen. Although you won't need an appointment to be seen in a walk-in centre, you will need to wait until a doctor is available to see you. This can very greatly depending on how busy the centre is, meaning you could be waiting for hours.
