I was sent here by my GP as they were unable to offer me an appointment, I was seen by the triage nurse within half an hour, who gave me poor advice about the pain killers I had been taking, and then said I had probably pulled a muscle. I then waited over three hours to be seen by a doctor, who never introduced themself, they asked a few questions and without any examination told me that I needed a blood test which would have to be done at Cramlington. I left and after a further weeks wait got to see my GP who diagnosed a serious chest infections, they actually listened to my chest. What are the walk in centres for?
Just save yourself time and head to A&E.
