The NHS is encouraging people to prepare for the long weekend by checking they have all their repeat prescriptions.

Patients are also reminded they can get expert medical advice on a range of common illnesses at their pharmacist during the Bank Holiday weekend.

Paul Twomey, medical director for NHS England in Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “It is vital that those with long term conditions or who have regular medication make sure they have their prescriptions so they do not run out over the weekend.

“Also if you need advice over the weekend your local pharmacy can help you with more than you might think.

“Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.”
