Iv had a really bad nasty cough and cold for about 4 week now and it's not shifting or getting no better. The doctors can't fit me in until the 6th of jan. Been coughing up green thick gunk confused I cough that much I nearly throw up. Got in bed last night and couldnt sleep because my chest was so wheezy. Does anybody know if I can just go walk in centre for it? Can't have another sleepless night I feel drained hmm

I would walk you are pregnant and poorly sounds like you may have a chest infection and need antibiotics. They are there to help people who need medical attention and it sounds like you do smile

Not all areas have walk in centres. You have have to google to find out what is in your area.

you sound perfect for walk-in centre just go.
We also have out-of-hours doctor, ring your GP & see if you have one too.

Why don't you phone 111? They will do an over the phone assessment and if necessary, sort you out an appointment with an out of hours doctor saving the wait of a walk in centre. They have always been brilliant when dd has been ill at the weekend and much better than the walk in/a&e. They will also sort out a prescription then and there if the chemist is shut.
