New Mills Out of Hours Walk-in centre
With recent changes to health service boundaries there are now even more options for care and treatment in the High Peak.
So, if you live in the New Mills and Glossopdale areas, the New Mills Walk-in Centre – based at New Mills Health Centre is here for you!
The Walk-In Centre is open from 6pm until 10.30pm Monday to Friday and from 9am to 10.30pm on weekends and Bank Holidays.
It’s available to everyone – appointments can be booked through the 111.nhs.uk or 111 telephone service, or you can attend as a walk-in patient.
During the day, the Health Centre is run by Derbyshire Community Health Services.
The Out of Hours service at the Walk-in Centre is run by the not-for-profit, Community Interest Company DHU Healthcare, which is equally committed to providing compassionate, high-quality out of hours health advice and treatment.
Both organisations work in collaboration for the benefit of patients. Between them they provide help, advice and treatment across a range of services and offer support for each other – coming together to do their very best to ensure every patient gets the right treatment from the right person when they need it.
Caroline Hannan, Deputy Head of Clinical Services at DHU Healthcare says: “The out of hours service is an important resource for people in this area, as we are able to provide a wide range of services and advice, face to face from our DHU practitioners. We don’t have x-ray facilities and we can’t treat major injuries, but there is a vast array of service we can offer you.”
Head to the Walk-in Centre for bumps, bruises, burns, sprains or insect bites – and all manner of minor illnesses such as coughs, asthma, rashes and other infections. When you arrive remember that:
- Patients are treated based on the urgency of their need, so during busy times you may need to wait to be seen.
- If you do come with something that’s serious, we can assess and refer you to a nearby Emergency Department or neighbouring Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) who have additional diagnostic facilities such as x-ray. We can also arrange ambulance transfer for people with critical conditions.
- There are normally two Practitioners on duty. This could be a nurse, paramedic or pharmacy practitioner. They are supported by a Healthcare Assistant who will also provide support and advice.
- Our practitioners can prescribe and, where appropriate, can send an electronic prescription to your chosen pharmacy or will print out a prescription for you to take with you.
Important information: The Walk-In Centre doesn’t have GP cover – so if you arrive with pregnancy related problems, or you have a baby under 12 weeks of age, you would be redirected to our GP service in Buxton.
