CHRISTMAS PHARMACY OPENING TIMES

Posted on Friday 19th December 2014

The NHS is encouraging people in Cumbria to plan their healthcare during the festive season.

With advice on common illnesses and the best medicines to treat them, visiting the pharmacist can save you time in the waiting room and help you feel better fast.

Dr David Rogers, Medical Director for NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Your local pharmacy can be an excellent place in offering expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.”

“Many pharmacies will remain open over the Christmas holidays, when other services are often unavailable. We would also encourage patients, as most GP surgeries will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day’ to order any medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”.

Cumbria pharmacy opening hours can be found on the keep calm this winter website|.

For information on walk-in centres, urgent care centres or minor injuries units please visit the NHS Choices website|. Patients can type in their postcode on the website to find their nearest services.
