All local pharmacies will be open on both bank holidays. Some pharmacies may have adjusted their usual opening times so we would advise you phone them and check before you travel. You can find your nearest pharmacy by visiting www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-pharmacy
During these unprecedented times and to help our community pharmacies cope under increasing pressure, we are asking patients and members of the public to:
- Avoid pharmacies if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19. If you have a dry, persistent cough, fever or shortness of breath, please avoid entering your local pharmacies as you would any other healthcare setting.
- Be patient: All pharmacies are under immense pressure and working around the clock to ensure that you get what you need.
- Adhere to social distancing rules. If you have to go out stay at least 2 meters (3 steps) away from other people.
- Order medicines as normal: There is no need to stockpile medicines. Ordering extra prescriptions and buying more over the counter medicines than you need will contribute to disruption to the medicines supply chain, which is otherwise robust.
