Walk-In Centre Services
The Walk-In Centre is a nurse lead service staffed by experienced nurse practitioners and paramedics. Staff are trained to assess, diagnose and treat some conditions.
Some more serious conditions will need to be treated by the patient's registered GP and some patients will be referred to the hospital. Certain conditions we are unable to treat as follows:
- Breast lump concerns
- Eye injuries
- A suspected fracture
- Foreign bodies in wounds
- Some serious pregnancy related problems
- Some repeat prescription medication
- Some sexual health complaints
Reception staff ask what you are attending for to ensure that you do not wait unnecessarily if we aren't able to support you or to stream you to a more appropriate service if necessary..
Please note: We do NOT have X Ray facilities on site.
To enable you to have the best possible care, patients who require wound care or change of dressing should ideally bring their dressings and a care plan. We may have to refer you back to your treatment room nurse.
If you are unsure or have any queries, please ask a receptionist upon arrival who will be happy to seek advice from a nurse.
