The walk-in service is staffed by GPs and Nurse Practitioners. You may not always be seen by a Doctor, but will be seen by an appropriate health professional.

The walk in clinic runs throughout the day but please call in advance to check availability, particularly towards the end of the day. If we cannot see you, we will direct you to an alternative NHS service to get you the treatment and advice you may need. 

If you a registered patient at Hawthorn Medical Centre and require an urgent on the day appointment please call at 8am to book an on the day appointment.

We appreciate it is frustrating to wait for a walk in appointment. Unfortunately waiting times can be lengthy, often 2-3 hours.

We operate on a first-come-first-served basis, unless a patient is extremely unwell and our doctors makes a clinical decision to prioritise. Towards the end of the evening capacity is limited.

The waiting room is also for our registered patients. You may therefore see other patients being called before you.

If an emergency occurs our doctors and nurses must attend to this, which can cause significant delays.

We try to see patients as soon as possible, we operate fairly and ensure patients are kept safe.


To find out our current wait time for the walk in clinic, please call reception on 0161 220 6080.
