Accrington Walk in Centre

Following consultation, the CCG has made the decision to close Accrington Walk in Centre at 8pm on Sunday 17 June. The other services which are provided out of Accrington Community Hospital such as the Minor Injuries Unit, x-ray, and in-patient and out-patient services are not affected by the changes and will remain available.

We have implemented a new system of extended GP access and no patient will be left without any GP provision. 

GP services are accessible to patients through their own GP practice from 8am until 6.30pm Monday to Friday as usual. Pre-bookable appointments will also be available in the new extended GP service after 6.30pm on weekdays and at the weekend. These appointments will be booked through the patients’ own GP practice. This new model of extended GP access meets the principles that were tested and supported by local people through a formal consultation process.

In addition, 111 can signpost patients to the most appropriate services including an appointment with an out of hours GP if required.

We understand and appreciate that this is a real change for those patients who are used to being able to walk in to see a GP rather than phoning up for an appointment. However, it is important that patients realise there are a number of alternative options available without the need for a GP appointment and which can be accessed directly.  These include:

  • Local pharmacies which are available to support the health care needs of people with a minor ailment.
  • Local opticians as many can treat minor eye conditions.
  • The emergency dental service provided for people across the district.

Alongside improving and extending GP access, the CCG has also invested significant funding into social prescribing and care navigation. These additional services are helping to guide patients and coordinate their journey through the health care system to get the right help and support quickly.

Patients have told us that they appreciate this extra help, which is helping them to better understand what services are available and access the most appropriate services to meet their needs, including community support.

We have taken the opportunity to enclose some promotional materials if you would please display and promote within your own networks. 

Many thanks in advance for your assistance, patience and understanding during this period of transition.
