The local NHS is reminding people that they can still access urgent care over the Easter 2022 bank holiday weekend, especially on Friday 15 April (Good Friday) and Monday 18 April (Easter Monday) when GP practices will be closed.
People who need to be seen by a health professional face to face are being asked to contact NHS 111,who will help direct themto the most appropriate service for advice or treatment.
NHS 111 is staffed by a team of trained professionals and clinicians who provide over the phone triage, and can arrange a face-to-face appointment with an out-of-hours GP, or at a local hospital A&E department if needed.
Alternatively, people can also attend a local NHS Walk-in Centre without an appointment. All of Liverpool’s Walk-in Centres are open from early until late (8am-8pm), seven days a week, including bank holidays. You can find your nearest Walk-in centre here.
Parents are reminded that they can access help for children who are unwell at any Walk-in Centre, or use Alder Hey’s new symptom checker at: www.alderhey.nhs.uk. It offers advice on common symptoms in children, and when to seek further help from their A&E department.

Many local pharmacies are still open over the Easter bank holidays, but some will be closed, and others will be operating with different opening times to normal – so please contact NHS 111 for further advice on your nearest open branch.

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
