Monday 19 September bank holiday – GP practice closure
Our GP practice will be closed on Monday 19 September 2022, following the announcement that this will be a bank holiday to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s State Funeral. We will reopen as usual on Tuesday 20 September 2022.
If you have a GP practice appointment booked for Monday 19 September, we will contact you to rearrange your appointment.
We ask that patients ensure they have enough of their usual repeat medication to last for the extended weekend. All requests for repeat medication should be submitted by 15/09/202 to give enough time to process them before the coming weekend.
For information about many common illnesses and injuries, symptoms and treatments, and advice about what to do, when to get help and which NHS service to use, visit the NHS website: nhs.uk.
There will be pharmacies open over the bank holiday weekend. People can drop in for expert advice on many common illnesses such as headaches, sore throats and aches and pains, and there is no need to book an appointment. Pharmacies can also give you help and information on which medicines people can buy over the counter to help manage their illness. To find a pharmacy, visit the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/pharmacy/find-a-pharmacy
