This is quite the holiday season with the Easter weekend and bank holidays round the corner.
The NHS has urged people to have a plan in place to tackle medical emergencies. Those who are on regular medication must ensure they stock up adequate supplies as GP surgeries are closed on public holidays.
Additional information is available on NHS websites, where people can access information about treatment options during the holiday period. Pharmacies are also a good place to seek healthcare advice during the holiday time.
Further, people can also call NHS Direct or visit their website www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk for information on health matters.
