Should I use this service or go to a walk-in centre?

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.

Unfortunately, however, walk-in centres may require a long waiting period as you'll need to queue to see a doctor. Push Doctor offers a more convienient solution, allowing you to video call a GP from 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. If you do visit a centre, however, you'll need to make sure you're ariving during opening hours as they can varry from site to site. 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.
