May bank holiday pharmacy opening times

01 May 2019


*

Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group has published the opening times of local pharmacies for the May bank holidays.

Your local pharmacy can provide expert medical advice on a wide range of conditions and should be the first place you go to for any minor health problems over the long holiday weekends.

Hospital A&E departments can be extremely busy over bank holidays, so should be avoided unless you have a serious medical emergency. By going to your local pharmacy you will be seen far quicker.

Health bosses say everyone should complete a short check list before the bank holidays:

  • If you regularly take a prescription medicine make sure you have enough to get through the holiday weekend – don’t run out
  • Keep your home medicine cabinet well stocked to ensure you can deal with any minor accidents or illnesses
  • Check the opening times of your local pharmacy here

If you or a member of your family are feeling unwell over the bank holidays and you’re unsure which medical service is most suitable, call NHS111. This is a free service offering expert medical advice 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
