Bank holiday opening for GPs, community pharmacy, and urgent dental care

GP practices

GP practice services will be available on Friday 8 May. This may be offered by your regular practice or another nearby service.

If you need to talk to your GP practice about something other than coronavirus:

  1. Contact your GP practice online or by phone to be assessed. If your practice is not open for any reason you will be directed to another nearby service.
  2. If a face-to-face appointment is necessary, you’ll be advised on this.

Community pharmacy services

  • Many community pharmacies will be open for a minimum of three hours on Friday 8 May with some pharmacies being open longer. Please check the NHS website or your pharmacy’s own website for details.

Dental services

If you think you need urgent dental treatment:

  • call your dentist
  • if you cannot contact your dentist, or you do not have one, use the NHS 111 online service
  • if a clinical appointment is necessary, this will be arranged at an urgent dental care centre.
