Avoid the traffic in A&E this bank holiday (Monday 28 August) weekend by visiting your local pharmacist.
With the bank holiday fast approaching it is important to ask for repeat prescriptions in plenty of time and to know which pharmacies are open over the holiday weekend.
That is the advice from the NHS in Mid Essex.
Dr Alistair Lipp, Medical Director at NHS England Midlands and East (East) 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 bank holiday Monday, 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.”
