It’s important to remember that not all pharmacies will be open over the whole bank holiday period.
The NHS is reminding people in Nottinghamshire where they can access expert medical treatment during the Easter holiday weekend (Friday 19, Sunday 21 and Monday 22 April 2019).
Patients can save time in the waiting room by visiting their pharmacist for quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses and making sure they’ve requested repeat prescriptions using GP online services.
Trish Thompson, Director of Primary Care and Public Health for NHS England and NHS Improvement – Midlands, said: “Weekend and evening GP appointments are now available across the whole of the Midlands. This means that patients needing a GP this Easter can still get an appointment when their surgery is closed by following the instructions on their answerphone or calling NHS 111.
“In addition to GP services, other healthcare options over the bank holiday weekend include urgent treatment centres and pharmacies and advice from NHS 111.”

People can also find information on their nearest walk-in centres, urgent care centres or minor injuries units by simply typing in their postcode on www.nhs.uk
If you need urgent care, use the NHS 111 service by visiting 111.nhs.uk online or by dialing 111 on your phone. NHS 111 is a free service which runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
