Prestwich Walk In Centre

Prestwich Walk in Centre (WIC) provides a service for those needing URGENT care for minor injuries and illnesses. 

This includes:

  • Ear/nose/throat symptoms
  • Minor cuts and bruises
  • Sprains and strains
  • Abdominal pain
  • Insect and animal bites
  • Rash
  • Urinary tract infections

The centre is open from 12pm to 8pm (*) seven days a week.  (* last check in is 30 minutes prior to closing to allow staff to effectively and appropriately assess people).

As this is a drop in service, there are no appointments or referrals into this service.  There may be up to a 4 hour wait to be seen dependent upon the demand and complexity of those patients attending on any given day.

The service is not for treatment of ongoing, routine or ‘managed care’. This includes injections, removal of sutures and changing dressings.  Patients will be signposted to the alternative appropriate services if they do not have an urgent minor injury or illness. 

The walk in centre should be used where patients are unable to get an appointment with their own GP where they need to be seen same day or as an alternative to going to A&E for urgent minor injuries or illness.

We also provide Bury Walk in Centre.
