the urgent care WALK IN CLINIC
What is the Walk In Clinic?
A walk-in service staffed by dedicated GPs and specially trained nurses launched at the Strensall Health Care Centre in June 2014. This service guarantees you a same day consultation if you feel your medical problem is urgent and will not wait for a routine appointment.
This service is for our registered patients only and operates Monday to Friday from 8.30am-11.00am.
On arrival, patients will be asked to complete a short assessment form briefly outlining the reason for their visit. As this service is aimed at dealing with urgent problems the doctor or nurse will only deal with ONE problem. Other routine issues may need a second appointment.
Normally patients will be seen in order of arrival but the clinical team will assess each patient’s problem and may make adjustments for clinical need. This means someone who arrives after you may be seen earlier.
If you have any questions or queries about this service, do not hesitate to speak to a member of the reception team or give us a call on 01904 490532.
Why have we launched the Walk In Clinic?
- To give our patients SAME DAY access to treatment or advice, without the need to telephone for an appointment
- To reduce the demand for booked routine appointments, enabling GPs more time to manage complex cases
- To reduce the need for patients to call or book an appointment electronically
- To assist in alleviating the pressure on hospital A&E departments and walk-in centres.
N.B: This service does not include dressings which must be seen in a specialist Treatment Room Nurse appointment.
