Home » Putnoe Walk-In Centre Contract extended until March 2024

Putnoe Walk-In Centre will remain open as the contract has been extended to 31 March 2024 by Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care Board (ICB). 

The current opening hours for the walk-in centre remain the same.

The staff at Putnoe Walk in Centre and the ICB will be working with other primary care health providers and local communities to co-design the future model of same day urgent primary care across the BLMK footprint in the period leading up to March 2024.   

Nicky Poulain, Chief Primary Care Officer for the new Integrated Care Board, said:

“We are pleased to announce the extension for the contract for Putnoe Walk-In Centre and the commitment to actively co-design with local communities what the future integrated urgent same day access provision looks like for local residents.

“Putnoe Medical Centre will continue to provide excellent care for patients that choose to use the Walk-In Centre.”

Sam Paul, Practice Manager for Putnoe Walk-in Centre, said:

“We are pleased that the extension to our contract means that we have continuity for the next 16 months for the Walk-In Centre, after a very challenging period through the Covid pandemic when we remained open every day. 

“We are delighted that we can continue to provide this valuable same day walk in access to the patients who value this service so much. It also provides stability for us, our hard-working staff, and our patients (both registered and non-registered).  “We look forward to working with the ICB, our patients and other stakeholders to develop the local plans for urgent care in the future.”
