**Visit a Walk-in Centre for your minor injury or illness**

If you have a minor injury or illness, you can be seen quicker at a Walk-in Centre than at A&E.

Walk-in Centres provide assessment, treatment and advice for minor injuries and illnesses including: infections and rashes, bruises, burns and strains, coughs, colds and flu, earache,
minor cuts and wounds, stomach ache, indigestion, constipation, vomiting and diarrhoea.

If you have a muscle / joint injury, need stitches or an X-ray, visit Victoria Central Walk-in Centre and the Minor Injuries Unit.




Cervical Cancer Awareness Week - 24-30 January 2016

Cervical Cancer Awareness Week - 24-30 January 2016

Every day in the UK 8 women are diagnosed with Cervical Cancer and 3 women lose their lives to the disease.


If you're aged 25-64, attending for your regular smear test is an important part of being a woman. If you've been bleeding during or after sex or in-between periods, have post-menopausal bleeding, unusual vaginal discharge, pain during sex, or lower back pain then make an appointment to see your GP.


Be Smear-Smart. If you've received your smear test invitation letter then please visit www.sexualhealthwirral.nhs.uk to see where you can attend.


For more information on when a smear test should be done please visit NHS Choices.
