Get To Know Where To Go for health advice - bank holiday weekends in May

With the two bank holiday weekends coming up in May, it’s important you know where to go if you, or someone else, become unwell.

 

If you take regular medicines on repeat prescription, do make sure you order them at least two weeks before you expect to run out. Your Local Pharmacy may be open over the bank holiday - check times here to give expert advice on minor illnesses, including over the counter medicines. For some conditions they can now issue prescription medicine if needed without a GP appointment.

 

If you need urgent help, check out the contacts below:

  • Dental - Greater Manchester Dental Helpline on 0333 332 3800, open 8am to 10pm.
  • Eye care - go to www.primaryeyecare.co.uk/find-a-practice to find an optician. This is not a walk-in service so always call first.
  • Mental health crisis support, free 24/7 helplines covering Greater Manchester. For Bolton, Manchester, Salford, Trafford and Wigan residents, call 0800 953 0285. For Bury, Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport, Tameside and Glossop the number is 0800 014 9995.

 

Remember, if you are unsure if you could be treated by a pharmacist, or you have an illness or injury that is urgent but not life-threatening, call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk. If you have a serious or life-threatening injury or illness, call 999 or go to A&E.
