The Walk in Centre located minutes away from Brighton train station is open from 8am to 2am on Saturday and Sunday (August 2-4). Anyone can visit Brighton Station Health Centre for treatment. There is no need to be a registered patient or to make an appointment to use the Walk in Centre and it offers quick treatment at a convenient location for Pride revellers.
A pharmacist can also help, offering treatment advice and recommend remedies, and give guidance on giving medicines to children. No appointment necessary to see a local pharmacist and most have private consultation areas.
