GP services and Community Pharmacy Opening Times – Christmas and New Year

GP Practices

There will be occasions over the Christmas and New Year period when your normal GP Practice will be closed. However, medical help and advice is still available. If you urgently need to see a doctor, ring your surgery as normal and your call will be diverted to the out of hours service. Alternatively, you can also dial 111 to get through to the free 24-hour NHS service. In emergencies, always ring 999.


There may be times over the Christmas and New Year period when your usual pharmacy may be closed. However, other local pharmacies will be available (see below for information). Remember to make sure you have enough of your usual medication to cover you over the bank holiday period.
