The Nottingham NHS Walk-in Centre offers a nurse led-service with fast and convenient access to advice, information and some treatments. It is a ‘sit and wait’ service; patients are seen in order of attendance unless your need is assessed as urgent. Waiting times vary.
The Nottingham NHS Walk-In Centre is based on London Road next to the BBC on a business park, close to the city centre and railway station (the full address is Seaton House, City Link, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG2 4LA).
You can call 0115 883 8500 for the location, current waiting times or to make an appointment for certain services. We focus on face-to-face patients in the centre, so please try later if we cannot answer your call in a timely manner
Opening hours are Monday to Sunday 7am to 9pm, including Bank Holidays. We are unable to give healthcare advice over the telephone. If you have an urgent health need and live in Nottingham City, phone 111 for help and advice or NHS Direct on 0845 4647.

What do we NOT offer?
The Walk-in Centre is not an emergency service. An emergency is a serious injury or life-threatening problem such as loss of consciousness, severe breathing difficulty, heavy bleeding, severe chest pain, obvious broken bones, deep wounds e.g. stab wounds, swallowing something harmful or poisonous or a drug overdose.
In an emergency call 999 for an ambulance or go to the nearest Emergency Department. In Notttingham, this is based in the Queen’s Medical Centre.
The Walk-in Centre does not provide maternity services.
It is available for anyone to drop in, but does not offer general medical appointments. The centre is nurse-led only. We do not have GPs on site or offer GP appointments.
The Walk-in Centre does not replace your GP. We offer advice and care for unplanned health needs, then we refer you to your doctor’s surgery for any follow up care.
We cannot provide repeat prescriptions or long term contraception. You should contact your GP or sexual health clinic in plenty of time to access ongoing care.
