Walk-in clinics

Our walk-in clinics are run on a drop-in basis, there is no need for an appointment. These clinics can be very busy and you may have to wait a while before being seen. You should allow for being in the department for two to three hours.

We ask that men avoid passing urine for at least 2 hours before being seen by a doctor or nurse.


For our morning clinics doors open from 8.30 am and clinics commence at 9.00am. Afternoon clinics doors open at 13.30 and 16.00 for the evening clinic

Some walk-in session may not always be available - an alternative appointment may be given.  If you prefer an appointment or need advice you can telephone us on 01246 513500/ 512121

Appointments available on the day or within 48 hours.
