Healthcare options in Wirral this Easter
18 April 2019
Your GP practice will be closed this Bank Holiday weekend. However, if you need to access healthcare advice or treatment then there are still a range of services available.
Pharmacists can provide quick, confidential advice on a range of common illnesses such as aches, pains, coughs and colds. There are pharmacies open in Wirral over the bank holiday where you can just drop in for advice without an appointment.

If you have an illness that is important, but not an emergency you can call NHS 111 for free. It’s staffed by a team of fully trained call advisers supported by nurses, paramedics and doctors. They can assess your needs and guide you to locally available services. This might be:
• Speaking to a nurse over the phone for advice
• Arranging an urgent prescription at a pharmacy
• Directing you to the GP Out of Hours Service
• Directing you to out of hours dentist
• Directing you to a Walk in Centre or Minor Injury Service
