Walk-In Centre - MRI

The Walk-In Centre (WIC) is located next to the Accident and Emergency Department at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

The Centre is designed to make sure these people can get a same day assessment and treatment without increasing the workload on A&E. The Walk-In Centre was designed to see and treat patients with various problems, and also as a signposting service to put people in touch with the appropriate services.

Patients can walk in or are directed from Accident and Emergency via triage.

Additional Information:

We see between 100 and 150 patients a day at the Walk-In Centre. Patients can walk in directly, or are directed from A&E following triage. Many patients who report directly to WIC have been advised to come by their GP.

The patients that present to the Centre can have a variety of complaints; this can include acute and chronic disease management, minor injury and illness.

If a patient needs urgent specialist treatment, we can refer from WIC to one of the medical or surgical teams within MRI or make emergency appointments with the patient's own GP.

Typically, there are two to three nurses and one nurse prescriber or GP seeing patients in WIC.
