Where to get NHS help over Jubilee weekend

Posted on May 25th, 2022


The local NHS is reminding people that they can still access urgent health care over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend – including Thursday 2 and Friday 3 June when GP practices will be closed.

People who need to be seen by a health professional are being asked to contact NHS 111 in the first instance, unless it’s a life-threatening situation which requires calling 999 for an ambulance. 

NHS 111 is staffed by a team of trained professionals who can help direct patients to the most appropriate service for advice or treatment over the weekend. This could include arranging a face-to-face appointment with an out-of-hours GP, or at a local hospital A&E department if needed.

People can also seek treatment and advice for minor conditions at a local NHS Walk-in Centre over the bank holiday – with or without a pre-booked appointment.

All of Liverpool’s Walk-in Centres are open daily, from early until late (8am-8pm). You can find your nearest Walk-in Centre here.

Parents are also reminded that they can access help for under 16s at any local Walk-in Centre, or use Alder Hey’s new symptom checker at: www.alderhey.nhs.uk for advice on treating common symptoms in children, and when to seek further help.

Patients who take medication on a regular basis to help manage a long-term condition like high blood pressure, diabetes or asthma, are also reminded to check they have enough supply left in advance of the extended bank holiday period, to avoid being caught short when GP practices will be closed.

Some local pharmacies will continue to be open as normal over the bank holiday weekend for advice and treatment (particularly supermarket branches), but many will be closed or operating with shorter opening times to normal.

Please check with your local pharmacy in advance, or contact NHS 111 to find your nearest open branch if you do need urgent access to medicines over the bank holiday.

To access NHS 111 for help or advice, go to 111.nhs.uk or dial 111 at any time.

BSL users can also use the NHS 111 video interpreter service by going to: www.interpreternow.co.uk/nhs111
