Help us to help you this Christmas

Posted on December 14th, 2021


The local NHS is urging people not to forget about their health as they prepare for Christmas this year.

The NHS in Liverpool is reminding people that local services are still under considerable pressure as a result of Covid-19, and that they can help by planning ahead and taking care of their health this winter.

People should aim to order any repeat prescriptions at least one working week before Christmas Eve, to give a GP practice time to authorise the request, and a pharmacy time to order and dispense the medication.

No one wants to get ill over Christmas, but it’s really important to make sure that you know where to go for urgent health advice and treatment over the festive period, in case you or a loved one does become unwell – particularly over the bank holidays when GP practices will be closed.

The NHS is advising people to contact NHS 111 in the first instance – by visiting 111.nhs.uk or calling 111, unless it is a 999 emergency.

NHS 111 can help direct people to the most appropriate local health service if they aren’t sure where to go – this could include an out of hours GP, a pharmacy, a local NHS Walk-in Centre, or a hospital Accident & Emergency (A&E) department.

GP practices will be open up to and including 24 December (Christmas Eve), but will be closed over the Christmas weekend and bank holidays from 25-28 December, and again over New Year from 1-3 January 2022. They will open as normal on 29, 30, 31 December.

Local NHS Walk-in Centres based in Liverpool, Sefton and Knowsley will continue to be open daily over Christmas, including on Christmas Day itself. More details about the opening times for different sites can be found here.

There will also be some pharmacies open in your area throughout the Christmas period. Visit www.nhs.uk to find a pharmacy that’s open near you.

If you or someone you know needs urgent mental health support, you can access help at any time from Mersey Care’s specialist mental health services here.

You can also find lots more helpful health advice and support at: www.nhs.uk
