Walk-in Centre at Teddington Memorial Hospital

Walk-in Centre nurse team

Changes to walk-in centre at Teddington Memorial Hospital

From 2 July 2018 the Walk-in Centre is changing to an urgent treatment centre

  • New opening hours will be 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week

  • After 8pm please call NHS 111 – you can call NHS 111 at any time to find the right care for you

  • Bookable appointments will be available alongside walk-ins for adults and children who may need urgent treatment

  • We are increasing the flexibility of the service, which will be run by GPs and nurses, with other healthcare professionals

  • They will offer advice and treatment for adults and children with injuries or illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening

  • The urgent treatment centre will combine the current walk in centre with an extended hours GP service, based in the same location

  • Combining the two services will result in improved GP cover, resulting in better care for patients

What’s different for patients?

The main differences for patients are that bookable appointments will be available and the opening hours are changing.

Appointments

  • You may be given a booked appointment, following clinical triage when you call NHS 111

  • You may be given a booked appointment by your GP practice

  • You can still walk in and be given a booked appointment (you can then choose to sit and wait or come back at the appointment time)

Opening hours

  • The new service will stay open until 8pm, rather than the current 10pm, in line with other urgent treatment centres – call NHS 111 after 8pm

Richmond CCG, Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust and the Richmond GP Alliance, have worked on developing the service together, with input from stakeholders.

If you have any queries about this please email pals.hrch@nhs.net or call 0800 953 0363 – the phone is answered between 9am and 5pm, but you can leave a message at any time. For more information, please click here
