To support and maintain the safe and effective delivery of care for our patients and staff, Litherland Walk-in Centre operates a telephone triage and appointment system with no opportunity for patients to ‘walk-in’.
As of Monday 13 July, patients will be able to book an appointment by contacting Litherland Walk-in Centre direct on a new number which is: 0151 475 4667.
By using the appointment system, patients will be triaged over the phone by an experienced walk-in centre clinician. If they need to be seen at the walk-in centre, an appointment will be allocated.
The Litherland Walk-in Centre telephone triage line will operates every day, from 8am to 8pm.
Those who only have COVID-19 symptoms will be directed to NHS 111. If you have COVID-19 symptoms and still require walk-in centre treatment for another problem, you will still be triaged and seen.
Dr Rachel Williams, associate medical director for Sefton, said: “We’ve introduced the new number and dedicated call centre to enable patients to contact the walk-in centre directly, which will improve the triage process.”
Delivered by North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Litherland Walk-in Centre provides consultations, advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses.
