It's a bank holiday on Monday August 26 - meaning GP practices and some pharmacies will be closed. Here is some useful advice and signposting to keep you and your family well.
  • If you use repeat prescription medicine please ensure you'll have enough to last - it usually takes at least 48 hours for your GP practice to process a repeat prescription request
  • If you need urgent medical help or advice you can call NHS 111 or visit NHS 111 Online anytime
  • Some pharmacies will be open on the bank holiday Monday - see list of opening times and locations below
  • The Suffolk GP+ service offers doctors' appointments in the evenings, at weekends and on bank holidays - ask at your own GP practice during its usual opening hours

It's great to be prepared

Having the medicine cabinet basics at home e.g. paracetamol and sticking plasters means you are best prepared to deal with minor illness and injury. Ask your pharmacist for advice on what items you should keep at home.
Please look out for others
 
Bank holidays can be a very lonely time, so please, make time for others. If you have an elderly relative or neighbour pop round for a chat or given them a call. You could be the only person they speak to all weekend.
