GP Practice's OPEN on Friday May BANK Holiday

GP practices are normally closed on bank holidays, but this year we will be open as usual on the Friday 8th May Bank Holiday.

Pharmacies will also continue to be open over the Easter bank holidays but contact them direct to check on their exact opening times.

NHS Walk-in Centres will continue to operate daily between 8:00am–8:00pm, with the exception of the city centre one on Hanover Street. However, people need to call first on 0300 100 1004 to arrange an appointment.

You can also visit, or call NHS 111 if you don’t have online access, 24 hours a day.

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms - a high temperature or a new, continuous cough – who needs medical advice, should use the dedicated NHS 111 coronavirus service online at:  You should only call NHS 111 for this if you can’t get help online, as their phone lines are very busy at this time.

If someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk, people should call 999 immediately, especially if they think that they or someone else is having a heart attack or stroke – every second counts with these conditions.
