Need health advice this August bank holiday?

If you’re feeling unwell over the August bank holiday and need urgent advice or treatment from a health professional, there are a number of healthcare options available.


For common illnesses, your local pharmacy will be able to give you advice on over the counter medications. Pharmacists are trained in managing minor illness and can assess symptoms and recommend the best course of treatment or simply provide reassurance, for instance when a minor illness will get better on its own with a few days’ rest. And, if symptoms suggest it’s something more serious, they have the right clinical training to ensure you get the help you need.
