Why our walk-in service is a hit
Our town does not have a walk-in centre so presumably will not benefit from the threatened extra £40 million to be invested in this service. Yet we, the local GPs, pharmacists and nurses, provide a total of five regular walk-in service locations, plus occasional branch surgeries, all with better continuity to our local population and temporary residents.
What is more, they can obtain a far more direct and speedy, individualised and reassuring service from us directly, rather than through NHS Direct.
