You won’t be without care this bank holiday

Everyone is hoping for good weather for the bank holiday but if you become unwell for any reason it’s good to know what’s open over the weekend and which services to use to get the best care.

Bank holidays are notoriously busy for health services as GP practices are closed for the day and people aren’t sure where to turn to if they need advice. However, there are a number of options available and people are being urged to use the most appropriate service and not automatically go to A&E.

You should only call 999 or go to A&E if it is a serious or life threatening emergency. For less serious injuries or health concerns you can visit the Walk-in Centre on Whitegate Drive in Blackpool or the Same Day Health Centre on Dock Street in Fleetwood which are both open as normal throughout the bank holiday.

If you’re not sure you can call NHS 111 which will be able to advise you where to go.

Pharmacies are also an excellent place to seek medical advice for minor ailments. Pharmacists are trained professionals with a wealth of knowledge on how to treat all sorts of conditions. Though some may be closed over the bank holiday below is a list of those that are open on Monday 28 August.
