Support available this bank holiday Monday

This bank holiday Monday (May 25), a number of pharmacies will be open and NHS 111 will be available to offer you advice should you or a member of your household feel unwell.

GP practices will be closed and will reopen on Tuesday.

If you have a  health issue that cannot wait until the next working day, please contact the NHS 111 service, either online (111.nhs.uk) or by dialling 111. The service will advise you  on the right course of action and can refer you to services (i.e. the out-of-hours GP service) if treatment is needed.

Whilst some pharmacies will be open, many will be closed so we would urge you to check before heading out – particularly in light of the social restrictions. Click on the below link to see pharmacy opening hours in Slough, Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot and Bracknell:

Many common ailments and minor injuries can be managed at home with the help of a well-stocked medicine cabinet. For more information see here.

Information on mental health services, including crisis support, can be found here.

Only attend A&E or call 999 in the event of a genuine emergency.
