Both services are situated at the Rotherham Community Health Centre, so patients can choose to register at Chantry Bridge Medical Practice or can attend the Rotherham NHS Walk-in Centre whether they are registered with a GP or not, as they do not need an appointment to get treatment at the Walk-in service. Care UK is extremely pleased that this new facilities have opened, as they provide local people with greater choice about how they access healthcare, in a way that is convenient to their lives.
Care UK now operates 10 GP surgeries and Walk-in centres across the UK, fulfilling people’s lives by providing high quality health care to thousands of people in a way that is easy to access and convenient.
Both services offer easy access with some free onsite parking and extended opening hours. Patients will be seen at the Rotherham NHS Walk-in Centre from 8am-9pm every day except Christmas Day, while Chantry Bridge Medical Practice will also be open from 8am-8pm Monday to Saturday.
Mark Hunt, Managing Director of Care UK Primary Care said:
“Care UK is delighted that these new facilities have opened, giving access to high quality health care to the people of Rotherham. Through our partnership with NHS Rotherham, the facilities will provide medical services to anyone, from 8am to 9pm seven days a week, meaning that everyone in the area will benefit from these new services, and will have greater choice about how they wish to access healthcare facilities and treatment. These services are in addition to the diagnostic services that we already offer in the Rotherham Community Health Centre.
“The facilities are now open, so I would encourage anyone who is in need of healthcare to drop in, whether they are registered with a GP or not, as the walk-in service is available to everyone on a first come first served basis.
“Care UK has an extremely high standard of care in our GP practices and Walk-in centres across the country, with 94% of our patients rating our Walk-in centres as either good or excellent. We are confident that the care at the new service in Rotherham is of a similarly high standard. Care UK look forward to continuing to work in partnership with NHS Rotherham bringing easy to access, high quality health care to local people.”
