What is intended as a four-day holiday weekend may turn out differently for some in the event of illness.
If you’re feeling a cold before Easter, you might be concerned about accessing medical treatment over the long bank holiday weekend. With most businesses closed on public holidays, it could be harder than usual to access the care you need.
But don’t worry, we have explained how to find an open pharmacy over Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.
Which pharmacies are open on Easter Sunday?
Pharmacies are normally open on Sundays, but this changes over the Easter weekend. On Easter Sunday, certain pharmacies may be closed during the day, meaning your pharmacy may not be available.
To find out which pharmacies are open in your area you can use the NHS website. The NHS pharmacy examiner allows you to enter your zip code and shows you pharmacies in your area.
If you check on Easter Sunday there will be a message at the top of the page before listing all the pharmacies in your area: ‘All pharmacies will be shown. Now only show open pharmacies.”
You can click on the “Only show pharmacies open now” link to find the pharmacies that are open near the zip code you entered.
Access to medical services over the Easter weekend
With many shops and services, such as banks and GPs, closed on public holidays, you may be concerned about what to do if you get sick.
The NHS is reminding people many medical services are still available over the Easter weekend. Urgent care is still accessible, such as B. A&E departments and NHS 999.
If you need non-emergency medical assistance you can use the dedicated NHS 111 online service or call NHS 111.
Are pharmacies open on Easter Monday?
Yes. Certain pharmacies are open on Easter Monday, but with limited service.
As on Easter Sunday, your usual pharmacy may be closed or have different opening times.
Again, you can use the NHS to find out which pharmacies are open in your area pharmacy examiner. Those who live in the capital can see a list of London Pharmacy opening hours over the Easter weekend, compiled by the NHS.
