What is a walk-in centre?
A walk-in centre is an alternative to visiting a GP or hospital, offering treatment to minor inguries and sicknesses. Walk-in centres are popular because you don't need to be registered to recieve treatment.

Push Doctor offers a more convienient solution, allowing you to video call a GP from home.
What services do walk-in centres have?
If you need non-emergancy healthcare but can't wait for an appointment with your GP, walk-in centres can offer assistance in a number of areas, 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.
