What is a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are sites that provide medical attention for routine ailments and injuries. 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. If you don't need emergency treatment, however, Push Doctor is a more convinient way to recieve medical advice from NHS proffesionals.
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, provided your local walk-in centre is open, you can go whenever you need to. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment. Another thing to consider is your wait time. You don't need to book an appointment to be treated in a walk-in centre, but if their are a number of other patients who also need treatment, you may have a long wait to be seen by a doctor.
What's the alternative to a walk-in centre?
Not everyone enjoys visiting walk-in centres, which is where we come in. Push Doctor lets you book an appointment with a doctor without leaving the house. We can connect you to a medical proffesional via video calls or text chats to recieve prescriptions and healthcare recommendations, all from the comfort of your home. To get started, all you need to do is set up an account with Push Doctor and set up your first digital appointment.
