Soon people in Hereford will be able to walk into a health centre, without an appointment, to see a GP or nurse, seven days a week between 8am and 8pm. The service will be launched just before Christmas.

NHS Herefordshire is setting up the service at the ASDA Health Centre in the city fromMonday 14 december. It will be an interim arrangement until a permanent walk-in health centre is built next year, with govermment funding of £1.5 million.

The ASDA Health Centre will be open over the festive holiday. Patients will be able to use the new services while remaining registered with their own GP. The phone number for the new service will be the same as the current number to call a GP out of hours – 0330 1239309.

The permanent new GP-led walk in health centre will replace the temporary service at ASDA, which will run until the new facility is opened. Discussions between NHS herefordshire and Herefordshire Hospitals NHS Trust to site permanently the new health centre at the hospital have been progressing strongly.

Cllr Glenda Powell.
