For almost all other injuries and illnesses, our walk-in urgent care service is open every day from 8am to 8pm, for instant access to expert doctors and diagnostics, including X-ray and MRI.
Sometimes, life happens. If you have a pressing health concern and want to avoid NHS queues, VisitHealth’s specialists are available immediately to put your mind at rest or treat you to the highest clinical standard. If you need referring for more tests or specialities, our specialists are on standby on-site and on-call, seven days a week, with the very latest diagnostic ultrasound and endoscopic technology and blood work for instant and rapid results, interpretation and clinical decision making.
You don’t need an appointment, just walk in and straight away you’ll have access to the specialist care you need.
We see everyone from 18 years old.
All costs, such as the cost of imaging or any tests to help diagnose you, will be discussed with you in advance.
