The UK government has pledged £12m ($22m) towards the construction of 17 new NHS so-called "walk-in" centres, bringing the total to 82. These centres provide minor treatment and initial consultations with the aim of complementing the activity locally of existing NHS services. In Birmingham, a new centre will be fully integrated with other local health services. In Milton Keynes, a new centre will focus on relieving pressure on A&E at the local General Hospital. Over four million visits have been recorded at the existing centres since 2000.
