Knowsley walk-in centres to extend operational hours

by Jonathan Kearney

All three Knowsley walk-in centres will extend their operational hours from Monday 3 May 2021.

However, in order to comply with Government advice around social distancing, the telephone triage and appointment system will remain and this service will not return to a walk-in service.

The operational hours for all three walk-in centres will be Monday to Saturday 8am to 8.30pm. On Sundays and Bank Holidays it will be 10am to 8.30pm.

In order to maintain safety, services can only be accessed via the appointment system which you must call before visiting one of our walk-in centres.

Patients will be triaged over the phone by an experienced clinician, who will ask questions about your health and allocate an appointment if necessary.

Anyone needing to access one of the walk-in centres should call them direct using the numbers below:

  • Halewood Walk-in Centre – Tel: 0151 244 3533
  • Huyton Walk-in Centre – Tel: 0151 244 3150
  • Kirkby Walk-in Centre – Tel: 0151 244 3065

If you have any Covid-19 symptoms, you are advised to self-isolate and contact NHS 111.

Louise Johnston, Head of Operations Adult Community Health at North West Boroughs Healthcare, said: “We are really pleased to now be in a position to re-establish operational hours to pre-covid levels. Although we are no longer a walk-in service due to social distancing, our telephone triage system will ensure everyone who needs to be seen face-to-face will be, and in a timely manner.”

Delivered by North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Knowsley walk-in centres provide consultations, advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. You can find out more about this service at www.nwbh.nhs.uk/walk-in-centres
