Your NHS is available all year round to care for you. While your GP practice and some NHS services will close on 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th of December
and again on 31st December, 1st, 2nd and 3rd of January the NHS continues throughout this period to provide urgent care for those who need it.

The updated info in each of our Know Who To Turn To pages explains how and when to access these services and others over the festive holiday weekends.

Please note that details of pharmacy opening hours are correct at the time of publication, but any changes will be listed in the Pharmacy pages.  You can also call the individual outlet if making a long journey.  Phone numbers are listed on the Pharmacy pages of our Festive Guide to Health Services PDF.
