There are some revisions to the way minor injuries services in Portsmouth are being run and these take effect from Friday 1st July 2016. From that date St Mary's NHS Treatment Centre in Milton will have both doctors and nurses available to treat minor injuries or illness and anyone can go there. The walk-in service at Guildhall Walk Healthcare Centre (mainly for minor illnesses) will only be available to patients registered with a GP at the centre You can read about those changes here.
