GP Practices Open on Easter Bank Holidays
Posted on 9 Apr 2020
GP practices are normally closed on bank holidays, but this year we will be open as usual on the Easter bank holidays – Good Friday (10th April) and Easter Monday (13th April).
Pharmacies will also continue to be open over the Easter bank holidays, but contact them directly to check on their exact opening times.
NHS Walk-in Centres will continue to operate daily between 8am–8pm, with the exception of the city centre Walk-in on Hanover Street. However, you need to call first on 0300 100 1004 to arrange an appointment.
You can also visit www.111.nhs.uk, or call NHS 111 if you don’t have online access, 24 hours a day.
Anyone with coronavirus symptoms - a high temperature or a new, continuous cough – who needs medical advice, should use the dedicated NHS 111 coronavirus service online at: www.111.nhs.uk/COVID-19. You should only call NHS 111 for this if you can’t get help online, as their phone lines are very busy at this time.
If you or someone else is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk, you should call 999 immediately, especially if you think that they are having a heart attack or stroke – every second counts with these conditions.
