No certainty for future of Walk-In Centre

by timpickstone on 11 June, 2020

Following a consultation with residents NHS Bury and Bury Council have agreed to “move” the Walk-In Centre which was in Bury town centre at the Moorgate Health Centre to Fairfield Hospital.

At the same time, no commitments were made over the future of the Prestwich walk-in centre, which is currently being used as a COVID management centre. “That service is currently under review” is what was said at the meeting.

Walk-in facility at Moorgate Primary Care Centre will close, and services relocated to the 24-7 Urgent Treatment Centre in front of the accident and emergency department at Fairfield General Hospital. This will save around £2.6m a year.
