Healthcare options - Easter 2019

Different Tablets

Fifteen Pharmacies are set to open across West Cheshire on Good Friday, seven on Easter Sunday and 13 on Easter Monday.

Pharmacists are best-placed to advise on minor health concerns such as coughs, colds, aches and pains.

They can also help you decide whether you need to see a medical health professional. Most local pharmacies also have consultation rooms to enable private conversations.

Dr Chris Ritchieson, the chair of NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “It is vital that a wide range of healthcare options are available for people in West Cheshire all year round – including on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.

“It is also worth remembering that pharmacists are expert healthcare professionals who can provide specialist advice for a wide range of health conditions and you don’t need to book an appointment to see them.”

All West Cheshire GP practices are due to close on the three Easter bank holidays, however patients will continue to be able to access Extended Hours appointments for routine care from 9am-2pm on all three bank holidays.

To book an appointment call 0300 123 7743 or speak to your GP practice receptionist. The phone line is operational from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.

If you think your issue is more urgent, please call NHS 111.
