Bank Holiday – 29th August
Our practice will be closed from Saturday 27 to Monday 29 for the August bank holiday, reopening as normal on Tuesday 30 August.
If you need a GP appointment over the long weekend between 10am – 3pm Saturday and Sunday, or 11am – 1.30pm Monday, please call the practice on 01922 477 226 where you will be directed to the extended hours GP service and given a number to call.
When you call the number, you will be assessed by a clinician and offered a suitable appointment if required. This may be a video, telephone, or face-to-face appointment with a healthcare professional who will, with your consent, have access to your patient records.
Don’t forget, your local pharmacy can also provide confidential, expert advice and treatment for a range of minor illnesses. A number of pharmacies will be open across the bank holiday and you can find a full list, including opening times, here.
Bank holidays can mean that A&E could be particularly busy. If you’re feeling unwell but your condition is not life threatening, simply visit 111.nhs.uk. Enter your age, sex, postcode, and main symptom, and then you will be guided through a series of questions about your health problem.
To access the service via phone, dial 111 from any mobile or landline free of charge and you will be put through to an operator who will run through a few questions regarding your health problem to get you the right care.
For a medical emergency call 999 or go to your nearest A&E.
