Bank holiday health advice

Have your say

PATIENTS are being encouraged to think ahead and ensure they have any repeat prescriptions they need now, ahead of the Bank Holiday Weekend.

Primary care trust NHS Sheffield is also urging people to call their own GP surgeries even though they will be closed on Monday, in order to connect to the out-of-hours service which can offer advice over the phone or arrange home visits or appointments if appropriate.

Alternatively people can call NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or visit the Walk In Centre for illnesses at the Sheffield City GP Health Centre in Broad Lane - open from 8am until 10pm - or the Minor Injuries Unit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital - open from 8am until 8pm.
