People are being urged to think carefully before choosing to use a walk-in centre at a Norwich health facility when it re-opens following a move to Rouen House.
Timber Hill Health Centre will move overnight from Castle Mall on May 31 and re-open on June 1.
Its walk-in centre will be limited in terms of the number of patients it can treat until it is fully operational in September.
Mr Bloomfield, business manager at Norwich Practices Ltd, which runs the health centre, said: 'What we're asking people to think about is if they need a doctor, or if there are other ways of looking after themselves.
'People can go to their local pharmacist as they are an invaluable source of information and knowledge.
You may also want to watch:
'Or they can book an appointment with their GP.'
People with skin problems, coughs, or colds can be treated by pharmacists.

'The other option can be to call 111, the NHS non-emergency service where a trained clinician will be able to talk to people and advise the best option,' Mr Bloomfield said.
