Weekend medical help

Have your say

PEOPLE in Wearside can access medical treatment during the bank holiday weekend.

Tracy Johnstone, head of primary care for NHS England in Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, said: “Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.

“As most GP surgeries will be closed on Monday, we would also encourage patients to order any medication they need in plenty of time, so they have a good supply during the bank holiday.”

Pharmacy opening hours can be found on www.keepcalmthiswinter.org.uk/pharmacy-opening. People can also call 111.
