Local Walk-In Centres are generally open 8am-8pm. If your GP surgery is closed it is better to attend a walk in centre than A&E for an issue you consider urgent but is not a medical emergency e.g. minor cuts and wounds.
Washwood Heath Health and Wellbeing Centre, Clodeshall Rd, Saltley, Birmingham B8 3SN.
Unlike your GP at the practice however, doctors at a walk in centre do not have the benefit of seeing you on a regular basis, or have access to your medical records. You are more likely to be assured of continuity of care, effective treatment of on-going or long term conditions, and personal doctoring at your GP surgery.
It is wise therefore to always contact your GP surgery, at all times, with your health needs before going to a walk in centre or A&E. Doctors at the surgery will be able to advise you if you do need to attend the A&E department.
