You Can't Just Walk In!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:39 pm

As you will all be aware, the NHS in the UK offers a variety of different services ranging from NHS Direct to GP’s to Hospital Treatment. One of the NHS’s most used services is the Walk-in-Clinic service where you can just walk in and receive treatment instead of having to make a appointment with a GP.

Walk in centres are one of the newest additions to the NHS, and now plans have been implemented to close these centres. Many people believe that this is a mistake and that this will dramatically increase the number of people visiting already overcrowded Accident and Emergency departments and that this will increase already ridiculously long waiting hours.

The NHS, however, say that they are providing GP surgeries with extra funding to ensure that emergency patients can be seen immediately, and this will, therefore, create a walk-in style service. There is, however, doubt that this will improve service as the Walk-In service is used not only for emergency patients but for those that cannot see their GP for any reason. 

Personally, I think that this move is futile as the NHS is doing this in a attempt to save money. Closing Walk-In centres will save money in that respect, but the NHS are just going to inject that money into GP services to do the job of a walk in Centre. Doctors appointments are hard enough to get as it is and this will further stretch their resources and make doctors appointments even harder to get.

You have heard what I think, but what are your views on this? Should Walk-In centres be closed?
