Christmas and New Year Pharmacy opening times

Health leaders in Nuneaton, Bedworth and north Warwickshire are encouraging the public to choose their health services wisely over the Christmas period (24th December - 2nd January)

Due to the Bank Holidays, some services such as GP surgeries and pharmacies may be closed or working on a reduced service.

The NHS Warwickshire North Clinical Commissioning Group’s website (www.warwickshirenorthccg.nhs.uk) will have detailed up-to-date information about which pharmacies will be open (table below).

Patients who take regular medication are also reminded to ensure they have enough medication over the festive period. It is important to hand your repeat medication slip into your GP surgery to allow for it to be signed by your GP and dispensed by your local pharmacy.

Bank Holidays can also mean that A&E could be particularly busy. If you are feeling unwell and it is not an emergency, call 111. The NHS 111 service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week free telephone service with a trained health professional taking your call with support from registered nurses available.

The NHS 111 service can also offer health advice as well as direct you to the best and quickest health service for your treatment.

Your pharmacist is a qualified health professional and may also be able to help with your health needs over the long weekend while some of the other health services are busy with patients suffering more serious illnesses or injuries. Your local pharmacist can also offer advice and medicines for a range of minor ailments.

Ensure you stock up on general medication such as painkillers and cold/ flu medications to help you if necessary during the festive period. Over-the-counter medications are often the best option for minor complaints such as headaches, upset stomachs, pain relief and cold remedies.

If you will run out of medicines between the 24th December and the 2nd January, please contact your GP practice or if your practice is signed up to the Prescription Ordering Direct service call the team on 024 7624 6025.

If you normally order your repeat medication from the Prescription Ordering Direct service, please note the opening times over Christmas are:  Closed on 25th Dec, 26th Dec and 1st Jan. Open as usual  8am – 5pm on all other days (Mon-Fri).
