Virgin Care centres ready for the busy Christmas period
Virgin Care’s GP and walk-in services across England are prepared for the busiest time of year, as Christmas fast approaches – and patients are being reminded to check their stocks of medications and stay well this winter.
Many of Virgin Care’s walk-in centre services will remain open over the Christmas period, with each service publishing opening times on its local website. Patients at registered GP practices are being reminded to check and order repeat prescription medication needed over the Christmas period in advance, with most of Virgin Care’s practices operating 3 day turnaround times, in order to avoid running out over the Christmas period.
Najeeb Waiz, Service Manager at The Anchor Centre – one of Virgin Care’s GP practices in the West Midlands, said: “Christmas is such a busy time for services like this so it’s important we offer services so that people can access healthcare when they need to.”
- Information on opening times for all of Virgin Care’s services are available in the Primary Care service hub.
