Walk In Service

We have decided to trial a 'walk in' service at our premises at Burntwood Health and Wellbeing Centre

Burntwood Health and Wellbeing Centre can be found on the High Street in Burntwood, postcode WS7 3XH (next to the Leisure Centre).

This service allows our registered patient to ‘walk in’ at their own convenience to see a GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

The service is open on a Saturday from 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 4pm (limited appointments).

To access the service, you will need to be registered with Burntwood Health & Wellbeing Centre, Rising Brook Surgery or Chadsmoor Medical Practice.

Please note, we do not operate an appointment system and waiting times could become quite long.

In an emergency call NHS 111 or 999, DO NOT access this service.
