Know where to access the right treatment this bank holiday weekend


As the Bank Holiday Weekend approaches, local patients are being reminded about the range of NHS services available to make sure you get the right treatment at the right time. The Bank Holiday Weekend is normally a very busy time for the NHS, especially if people are taking advantage of any good weather by having barbecues or getting around to some DIY.

 People can access a variety of treatment and care by making sure they ‘choose well’ and use services such as their local community pharmacist, NHS 111 or Shropdoc. To look at the opening times for pharmacists in Shropshire over the bank holiday weekend please click here.

Patients can also call the out-of-hours GP service, Shropdoc, when their own surgery is closed on 0333 222 66 55

Help and advice is available 24-hours-a-day by ringing NHS 111 (just dial 111) for free.

 Minor Injury Units in Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Oswestry and Whitchurch also offer excellent care and support over the Bank Holiday period for any minor accidents. For the opening times of the Minor Injury Units please click here.
