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 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.
