If you are feeling unwell remember Prestwich and Bury Walk-in Centre for advice and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.
Prestwich and Bury Walk-in Centres are open every day of the week; you can just walk in with no appointment needed. It offers an alternative choice for anyone who can’t get a same day appointment at their own GP practice, when they are suffering from an ailment, illness or injury that needs assessing quickly, but isn’t serious enough to require a visit to A&E.
As a reminder, the Walk-in Centre on Fairfax Road Prestwich is open from 12pm to 8pm (last visit 7.30pm) and Bury Walk in Centre located in the Moorgate Primary Care Centre in Bury (opposite M&S) is open from 7am to 3pm (last visit 2.30pm) , every day of the year.
The Walk-in Centre team can provide advice and treatment for a wide range of minor illnesses and injuries including cuts and small wounds; coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms; rashes and sore throats; urinary tract infections and muscle and joint injuries including strains and sprains. The team includes nurses who can prescribe some medications if required, for example to treat an infection (not repeat prescriptions).
Care at the Chemist - Your local chemist is available for advice on minor ailments. Please make use of this valuable service.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
