Healthcare leaders are sharing advice for getting the help you need in Cheshire on bank holiday Monday (2nd April) should you become unwell.
People who need urgent NHS care, but it is not a 999 emergency, are advised to contact NHS 111 which is staffed by trained professionals and clinicians who will direct people to the most appropriate health service.
Dr Andrew Wilson, chair of NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “Although there are changes to some healthcare services over the bank holiday weekend, if you’re feeling unwell, there is plenty of help and advice available from NHS 111.
“We would advise you to ‘think 111 first’ and contact the team either by visiting 111.nhs.uk online to answer some questions about your condition, or by calling 111 over the phone.”
May bank holiday pharmacy opening times
Dr Andrew Wilson, chair of NHS Cheshire CCG, said: “Pharmacists are also there for you for help with common ailments should you need them. They are highly qualified health professionals who can give free, confidential advice and help you get the right medications for everyday illnesses.”
A number of pharmacies are open on bank holiday Monday. Residents are advised to check the opening times in the link or video below and to call their local pharmacy before travelling, just to make sure nothing has changed and that they are still open. Information will be added to the links as more opening times come into the CCGs.
