The NHS is reminding people in Nottinghamshire where they can access expert medical treatment during the May Bank Holidays (1 May and 29 May 2017).
Patients can save time in the waiting room by visiting their pharmacist for quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses.
Ken Deacon, Medical Director at NHS England (North Midlands), said:
“Your local pharmacy can help you with more than you might think. Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.
“As most GP surgeries will be closed on the bank holiday Mondays, we would like to encourage patients to order any medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the bank holiday.”
