The NHS is currently seeking the views of patients in Wakefield and North Kirklees about the areas’ walk-in centres. A walk-in centre offers people with urgent health needs the chance to get medical advice or treatment without the need for an appointment and at times when they may not be able to see their GP.

The current contracts for the walk-in centres located at King Street, Wakefield and Dewsbury and District hospital are due to come to an end in September 2022. Previous engagement work showed that people value the walk-in service in Dewsbury and Wakefield because it is convenient and often ensures they can be seen quickly.

The NHS wants to work with patients and local people to understand what they value about the service provided by walk-in centres so that it can be improved and developed in line with the latest national NHS guidance.

You can provide your feedback by taking part in this short, anonymous survey available here: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/walk-in/. Nova has paper copies at our office, please contact us at info@nova-wd.org.uk if you would like some copies.

People will have until Monday 3 January 2022 to provide their views.

If groups would like to help promote the survey, please use the above link. A list of FAQs is available on the NHS Wakefield CCG website that can be shared alongside the survey.

If you would like help to complete the survey or would like it in a different format, please contact: kirkccg.engagement@nhs.net or call 01924 315803.
