Plan for your health needs this May Day and Spring Bank Holiday

Monday 6th May and Monday 27th May 2024

25 Apr 2024
NHS South East London

As May Day (Monday 6th May) and Spring Bank Holiday (Monday 27th May) approach, be sure to order your repeat prescriptions early and have enough medicine for any existing health conditions. This will help you avoid any breaks in your treatment during the holiday.

Over the long weekends, some GP surgeries and pharmacies may be closed or open for shorter hours. This means it may take longer to access healthcare services.
