What to do if you're feeling ill this Easter bank holiday weekend

With Easter fast approaching, health professionals are reminding people to ensure they use the right NHS service for them, should they or their family members become unwell over the long weekend and also during the first May bank holiday. 

GP practices will be closed from Good Friday (19 April) to Easter Monday (22 April) and the early May bank holiday (6 May) but there are several other ways for residents across Merseyside to access medical help during this time, if they need it.   

If you’re unsure which service is right for you, ring NHS 111 to speak to a highly trained adviser who will assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.   

You can also visit 111.nhs.uk to get medical advice on where and when to get help.
