Plan ahead for the Jubilee Bank holiday weekend
27 May 2022
Help us help you by making sure you’ve ordered and collected any medication or repeat prescriptions you may need in advance of the bank holiday weekend, where some NHS services may have different opening hours to normal.
Pharmacies in London will be open over the bank holiday weekend, although they may have different opening hours to normal, and some will be closed.
Pharmacists are trained medical professionals and can advise you on a range of minor illnesses, from stomach aches to skin rashes and colds. Seeing a pharmacist is often the best first step for minor health concerns, and they can provide one-to-one, confidential consultations.
If you think you need urgent dental treatment, contact your dentist in the first instance. If you cannot contact your dentist or don’t have one, use the NHS 111 online service. If needed, an urgent appointment will be arranged at an out of hours service.
Taking simple steps to reduce infections from Covid-19 is still recommended.
We hope you have a good time over the bank holiday, but please remember to drink responsibly, look after yourself, and only call 999 in a life-threatening emergency.
