Out of hours Information

There are many ways for you to access healthcare out of hours. They include:                                

  •                                 Liverpool Community Health Walk-in Centres
  •                 NHS 111 Service
  •                 Pharmacy (Care of the Chemist)
  •                 Accident and Emergency (A&E) or 999 (Chest Pain/Stroke etc.)

Liverpool Community Health Walk-in Centres

A large proportion of the admissions to A&E are unnecessary and could be seen and treated at Walk-in Centres across Liverpool.  This not only eases pressure on the over-burdened Accident and Emergency units, it prevents patients waiting for hours unnecessarily for simple treatment and advice which can be accessed easily at Walk-in Centres.

Walk-in centres should be your first stop for all patients experiencing: minor infections and rashes, stomach upsets, superficial cuts and bruises, strains and sprains, coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms. They are also able to treat a host of other illnesses, so if you have any questions about whether you should attend the Walk-in Centre, please call the Emergency Doctor (details above).

The most common reasons for avoidable A&E attendances are:

  • Coughs and breathing problems
  • Eye infections such as conjunctivitis
  • Musculoskeletal problems such as back pain 
  • Stomach upsets including vomiting and diarrhoea in adults or children/babies

We have created handy information sheets and flow-diagrams for these problems which can help you decide the most appropriate place to seek help; these can be accessed by clicking on the conditions above.

Please bear in mind that this is intended as a guide only and if you are unsure please do not hesitate to call the Emergency Doctor (contact details above).
