Easter 2018 opening times for health services in Merseyside

The local NHS is reminding residents across Liverpool about how to access healthcare services over the Easter bank holiday weekend, whilst most GP surgeries are closed.

If you need urgent advice or treatment from a health professional but it’s not a 999 emergency, you can still see a local GP out of hours service by calling NHS 111 – including over evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

You can ring NHS 111 free of cost at any time for urgent medical advice, or more information on where to get treatment if you’re not sure where to go.

Dr Fiona Lemmens, a Liverpool GP and Urgent & Emergency Care Lead for NHS Liverpool CCG said:

"It’s really important that people know they can call NHS 111 if they do need to see a health professional such as a GP over the Easter bank holiday, and only go to our busy hospital Accident & Emergency (A&E) departments in a genuine, life-threatening situation such as suspected heart attacks, strokes or major bleeding."

The city’s local NHS Walk-in Centres are also open from 8am – 8pm every day , including during the Easter bank holiday weekend, offering treatment and advice for a wide range of minor injuries and illnesses such as stomach upsets and vomiting, infections, rashes, cuts, bumps and falls, minor sprains, breaks or burns, coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms.

They can also provide emergency contraception or X-rays if needed too. You don’t need an appointment - you can just walk in. 

Dr Lemmens adds:

"Don’t forget that you can also visit your nearest pharmacist for free, confidential advice on self-care and the best medicines for treating minor conditions or symptoms yourself at home. If you take medicine on a regular basis to help manage a long-term condition like high blood pressure, diabetes or asthma, make sure you check that you have enough medication left to last you through the long bank holiday weekend too. Don’t risk being caught short over the Easter weekend, when your normal GP practice will be closed."
