Bank Holiday Healthcare

August 25, 2021

GP Practices

Over the Bank Holiday, GP Practices will not be open as usual; therefore, if you require medical attention, please call NHS 111 to ensure you are triaged to the most appropriate service. Alternatively, you can still seek medical advice and over-the-counter treatments from your local Pharmacy.

Pharmacy

Your local high street Pharmacy is a good place to start if you have a minor ailment such as a headache, cough or sore throat. Pharmacists are qualified to give advice and dispense medicine for a range of illnesses including colds, stomach upsets, skin conditions and much more. Pharmacists can provide many treatments ‘over the counter’ to help you get better at home.

You don’t need to make an appointment, or even make a purchase to speak with them in confidence in a private consultation area.
