Stay Well this winter
The NHS is reminding people in Herefordshire where they can access expert medical treatment during the Christmas holidays.
Patients can save time in the waiting room by visiting their pharmacist for quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses.
Dr Arif Mahmood, Consultant in Public Health, Herefordshire Council, 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 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.”
Pharmacy opening hours over the Christmas holidays can be found here
Standard pharmacy opening hours in Herefordshire can always be found on the NHS Choices website - www.nhs.uk along with information on walk-in centres, urgent care centres or minor injuries units. Type in your postcode on the website to find your nearest Pharmacy.
