Be prepared for Easter Bank Holidays

Easter is early this year - and not far away! Remember that your GP surgery will be closed on Bank Holidays, so it's wise to make sure you have your health needs covered.

If you take prescribed medication regularly, make sure you have enough supplies to last over the holiday time and get requests for repeat prescriptions into your GP as soon as possible. It's also a good idea to check your medicine cabinet to make sure it is well stocked and buy anything you need before the holiday period.

If you need help with a short term illness or complaint over Easter, your local pharmacy can help. Some pharmacies will be open on Bank Holidays, but please check the list below for opening hours as many will be closed. If you need urgent medical advice, call NHS 111.
