Traffic on the roads is challenging around bank holidays and it can be just the same in A&E – so why not be smart and beat the queues this May bank holiday weekend?

Patients can save time in the waiting room by visiting their pharmacist for quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses.

Dr Hilary Flett said:

“Your local pharmacy can help you with more than you might think.  Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.

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