Patients in Gloucestershire will be able to access pharmacy and urgent GP surgery services this year during the Christmas and New Year period.
From 22 December to 7 January (including Christmas Day), urgent GP appointments are available from 8am – 8pm at either your GP surgery or another one. Contact your surgery for more information or to book an appointment.
If you need urgent medical care when your GP surgery is closed, call NHS 111 and they will make sure you receive the advice and care you need from doctors and nurses working in the Gloucestershire Out of Hours service. This could include advice over the phone, a visit to a local primary care centre or a home visit
Your local pharmacy is a great first port of call if you are ill or injured and are unsure where to turn. To find your nearest pharmacy, including details of opening hours over the festive and New Year period, visit the ASAP website here. The ASAP website and ASAP Glos NHS App can also provide advice on your healthcare options and the right service if needed.
Remember to use Emergency Services wisely; call 999 only when it’s a serious injury or a life threatening situation such as unconsciousness, heavy loss of blood, severe chest pain or stroke.
