Residents Urged To Check Festive Pharmacy Opening Hours

As the Christmas holidays fast approach, residents are being reminded that not all pharmacies will be open over the whole Christmas period and are being encouraged to check the times and dates of their local pharmacies.

Pharmacy opening hours in Nottinghamshire can be found on the NHS Choices website, click HERE, along with information on walk-in centres, urgent care centres or minor injuries units.

Patients can type in their postcode on the website to find their nearest services.

As 1st January is not a Bank Holiday, all pharmacies will be open or closed in line with their normal working hours for Sundays.

Ken Deacon medical director for NHS England in the North Midlands said:

“A lot of people don’t realise how useful their pharmacy can be and they can help you with more than you might think.  Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems, particularly winter illnesses such as sore throats and runny noses.”

“As most GP surgeries will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day we would also encourage patients to order any medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”

You can see a list of local pharmacy opening times below
