Readers have been urged to be ready for Easter by planning ahead for repeat prescriptions and using NHS services ‘appropriately’.

GP surgeries will be closed over the Easter weekend, including Good Friday and Easter Monday, with patients urged to make sure their medicine cabinet is well-stocked.

Dr Tony Naughton, said: “The Easter holiday period can be a very busy time for NHS services. “Ordering and collecting a repeat prescription in good time not only ensures you keep well but could also help keep staff free to deal with serious or life-threatening emergencies. “Making sure you have the right medicines could make all the difference. “Taking daily medication is an important part of treatment for those with long-term health problems such as asthma and diabetes and they are at risk of suffering serious attacks or hospitalisation if they run out of medicine.”

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones. Some pharmacies will be open over the Easter weekend, here are all the Bank Holiday times for Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
