Don’t forget your repeat prescriptions this Easter

Pharmacies across Bath and North East Somerset will have restricted opening hours over the Easter holidays, make sure you are prepared and have all the medicines you might need.

“If you or someone you care for requires medicines regularly, don’t forget to make sure you order and collect repeat prescriptions in good time so you have enough medicine to cover the holiday period,” advised Dr Ian Orpen, a GP in Bath and the Clinical Chair of Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group.

You can order and renew prescriptions through the GP Online Service provided by NHS England. Find out more about this service at www.nhs.uk.

While some pharmacies will be open on Easter weekend, you are advised to check by phone if the pharmacy of your choice is open before you visit.

A full list of Easter pharmacy opening times for the region will be published on our website shortly.
