Where possible GP practices will be open on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Arrangements will differ for each surgery over the weekend so patients should visit their practice website for specific opening hours and contact details and call the surgery directly if they need to speak to a GP. The surgery voicemail will advise callers what to do if they can’t get through to them at that time.

Your local pharmacy may also be open.

If anyone is concerned that they may have COVID-19 symptoms, they should not visit a health setting. Instead they should use the NHS 111 online service in the first instance 111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19 to check out their symptoms and get advice and information about what to do next.

Patients should only ring NHS111 if they are unable to manage their Coronavirus symptoms, have been instructed to do so or do not have access to the internet. This will allow the NHS111 telephone service to help those who need them most.
