Bank Holidays can affect the opening hours of local pharmacies.
Pharmacists can advise you on a range of conditions like sore throats, coughs and colds, tummy troubles and emergency contraception. Seeing a pharmacist is often the best first step for minor health concerns, and they can provide one-to-one, confidential consultations. A full list of pharmacies that are open over the May Bank Holiday are available here.
Over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend our GP practices across North West London will be open as normal on Friday and Monday, offering appointments from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
While our GP practices are working hard this weekend to see patients, you may also notice that your local practice is working slightly differently to normal. These changes are in place throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic.
GP practices are an important part of the NHS system during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Your local practice is open for you to use, but is working differently and we would ask you to telephone your practice in the first instance. Your practice will help you understand any changes to your GP services, and also be able to sign post you to other services when appropriate.
Bank holiday Friday is a normal working day and the GP practices will be open 8:30am to 6.30pm. You will receive a telephone assessment with a qualified health professional and then a face to face appointment if required.
Outside of these GP practice opening times (8:30am – 6:30pm) and at the weekend go online go online at NHS/111 for advice and support for advice and support. In a life threatening situation call 999.
