Walk-in centres axed

30th July 2008

Primary Care Trusts across the country are shutting walk-in centres to pave the way for new polyclinics.

At least 10 trusts have decided to close walk-in centres or merge them with new GP-led health centres in a move that appears to directly contradict Government guarantees that new centres would provide additional capacity and not replace existing services. Norfolk PCT is among those that will close its walk-in centre despite a 5,600-signature petition from patients. North East Essex says its new GP-led health centre in Colchester would incorporate the existing walk-in service.
