The NHS is reminding people in west Hertfordshire that they can access expert medical treatment during the August bank holiday at their local pharmacy.
With the August bank holiday approaching, the NHS says patients can save time in the waiting room by visiting their pharmacist for quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses.
Aly Rashid, NHS England’s Medical Director for Hertfordshire, 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 bank holiday 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 weekend.”
