Stay well this Spring Bank Holiday 

Not every GP practice will be open over the Bank Holiday, but you can still access healthcare services as appropriate during this time.

Pharmacies

Your local pharmacist can offer free, qualified health advice at any time, and no appointment is necessary. From coughs and colds to aches and pains, they provide expert help on everyday illnesses and answer questions about prescribed and over the counter medicines. They can also offer confidential advice on healthy eating, obesity and giving up smoking.

Pharmacy information for the whole of London can be found here.

Call NHS 111

NHS 111 can signpost you to a range of local health services, including doctors, community nurses, emergency dental care and late opening chemists. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is free to call from landlines and mobile phones.

Please note that out-of-hours dental services will be widely available across London over the Bank Holiday. Patients experiencing dental pain are advised to call NHS 111 in the first instance, who will transfer the call to London-wide Dental Nurse Triage service.  A dental nurse will ring the patient back and, if deemed appropriate, the patient will be referred to a dentist for urgent dental treatment.  In most cases this will be to a practice close to where the patient lives although, in some circumstances, patients may need to travel further depending on their location and what time of the day or night they ring.

Urgent Care Centres

Urgent care centres will be open 24 hours a day over the Spring Bank Holiday. They offer treatment for urgent minor illnesses and injuries and patients can be seen without an appointment.
