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.

Referrals:Patients can walk in or are directed from Accident and
Emergency via triage.
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
Typically, there are two to three nurses and one nurse
prescriber or GP seeing patients in WIC.
