Have your say

Guildhall Walk Healthcare Centre will be shut on Sundays from July 31.

It comes as the practice, which used to be a walk-in centre before the facilities moved to St Mary’s Hospital in Milton, only had on average two to three pre-booked appointments and 10 to 12 walk-ins on Sundays. On weekdays, the centre averages 40 to 60 pre-booked appointments a day and 45 to 55 walk-ins.
