Christmas and New Year pharmacy opening times in Bedfordshire

14 December 2016


As the Christmas holidays approach it’s important to remember that not all pharmacies will be open over the whole Christmas period.

Dr Aly Rashid, Medical Director for NHS England in Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes, said:

“A lot of people don’t realise how useful their pharmacy can be and they can help you with more than you might think.  Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems, particularly winter illnesses such as sore throats and runny noses.

“As most GP surgeries will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day we would also encourage patients to order any medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”

Pharmacy opening hours in Bedfordshire can be found on the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk) along with information on walk-in centres, urgent care centres or minor injuries units. Patients can type in their postcode on the website to find their nearest services.
