Be prepared for the bank holiday weekend says NHS bosses

Patients across Buckinghamshire are being reminded to collect their repeat prescriptions in time for the late May bank holiday.

Over the bank holiday, many community pharmacies and all GP surgeries will be closed, so the advice is to collection your medication as soon as possible, especially if you are planning to be away from home for a few days or during the half term break.

A list of some local pharmacies open on the bank holiday Monday across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West can be found on the NHS website see here or visit https://www.england.nhs.uk/south-east/our-work/pharmacy-opening-hours/

For people who run out of prescription medication during the bank holiday and need an emergency supply, the advice is to go to https://111.nhs.uk/ online which will signpost them on how to access their medication. 

Dr Abid Irfan, director of primary care at Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care Board, said: "Help yourself stay well over the bank holiday by making sure you have enough of your medication to see you through. Order your repeat prescription well in advance, especially if you're going away.

"If you do run out of your medication, NHS 111 online can offer advice on how to get an emergency supply. But it's always best to be prepared."
