  • Get ready for the August Bank Holiday weekend!

    The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust is urging the public to be prepared this Bank Holiday weekend to help avoid unnecessary 999 calls.

    After receiving more than 9,100 emergency 999 calls last August Bank Holiday weekend, ambulance bosses are asking people to plan ahead, know what health care services are available to them during this time and most importantly, to use the most appropriate service should the need arise. Pharmacists can help with lots of non-emergency conditions. Find your local pharmacy opening hours over the bank holiday weekend.

    The Trust experienced a 9 per cent increase in calls during the 2016 August bank holiday weekend. The most common calls were for falls (1,354), general sickness (707), breathing problems (565), chest pain (560). We also attended to more than 300 traumatic injuries during the long weekend.

  • August bank holiday pharmacy opening times

    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.”
