Walk-in centres - Knowsley and Sefton

Who we are
We have three walk-in centres in Knowsley (Halewood, Huyton and Kirkby) and one walk-in centre in Litherland in Sefton.

Our walk-in centres pro
vide consultations, advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. 

These include:

  • Infections and rashes (N.B. if measles is suspected, you are advised to stay at home and phone your GP or NHS 111 for advice)
  • Coughs and flu-like symptoms
  • Ear ache and sore throats
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Minor burns and strains 
  • Emergency contraception and advice 
  • Insect and animal bites
  • Stomach aches and upsets
  • Urine infections
  • Minor new eye problems
Please consider visiting a walk-in centre before attending accident and emergency (A&E) with a minor injury or illness. A&E departments are for serious and life threatening injuries only.

If you're not sure if a walk-in centre is the best option for you, you can contact NHS 111 for advice. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day; 365 days a year for any medical help which is needed fast, but is not a 999 emergency. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Further information on attending a walk-in centre can be found at: Are you winter ready? This page also provides useful tips to Help Us Help You stay well this winter. 

How to access our service
You can attend any walk-in centre and you don't need an appointment - you can just turn up.

Halewood, Huyton and Kirkby walk-in centres are open 8am-9pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-9pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

Litherland Walk-in Centre is open 8am-8pm every day.

We aim to see all patients as quickly as we can but please bear in mind that waiting times will depend on the number of patients waiting to be seen. Patients will be seen in order of urgency, so we aren't always able to see people in the order they arrive and book in to the walk-in centre.
