From 1 October 2018, Salisbury Walk in Centre will be co-located with Millstream Medical Centre, just seven metres away from its previous setting in the Central Health Clinic.
The move, which does not affect the services offered by the walk-in facility, means that the Salisbury Walk in Centre gains more space to see patients who need to use the service.
Anna Morton, Managing Partner at Millstream Medical Centre explains: “The decision to move the Walk in Centre to Millstream Medical Centre was an easy one. We have the space and it’s a bigger area, so there’s more room available for clinicians to run the service. And for those people who need to use the Walk in Centre it’s still really accessible, just a few metres away from the Central Health Clinic and has the large central car park close by.”
Patients of Millstream Medical Centre are not affected by the co-location of the Salisbury Walk in Centre, which will operate when the Practice is closed. People can use the walk-in service from 6.30-10pm on week days and from 8am-8pm at weekends, including bank holidays.
Anna continues: “We’ve made some modifications to Millstream Medical Centre to accommodate the Walk in Centre, including new signage to help people know where to go when they arrive, a separate waiting area and dedicated consultation rooms.”
The walk-in service provides convenient access to flexible health services and is run by a team of experienced clinicians. It is run on a first-come first-served basis unless someone is acutely unwell and needs immediate medical attention.
