The March edition of our newsletter, Engage, is online now. It features articles ranging from signs to watch for that might suggest ovarian or prostate cancer, to advice on filling your prescriptions ahead of the Easter weekend.
Easter will be with us before we know it. As most pharmacies and GP practices close on bank holidays, Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is reminding people who need medication to get ready by making sure they have enough of their usual medicines to see them through the long weekend.
Paula Wilkinson, Chief Pharmacist at Mid Essex CCG, said: “We advise that you put in the order at least a week before your medication is due to run out, as it can take three to four working days to process a repeat prescription. The lead-up to Easter sees GPs and community pharmacies even busier than usual, so it’s even more important to be prepared.
