Patients are being urged to make sure they know where to go for medical help and advice ahead of the long Easter weekend.

With GP surgeries closed on Good Friday (19 April 2019) and Easter Monday (22 April 2019), it is important that patients across Birmingham and Solihull know their options.

Options this Easter weekend:

  • Self-care – make sure you have a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home, so you can deal with minor injuries and ailments at home
  • Pharmacy – your local pharmacist can give you quick, confidential advice on lots of common illnesses, as well as over-the-counter medication. Find out if your local pharmacy is open on Good Friday, Easter Sunday or Easter Monday. Click here for more information.
  • GP practice extended access appointments – some practices will be offering limited appointments, but these must be booked in advance through your GP practice. Find out more Click here for more information.
