WITH a long weekend coming up, the NHS is reminding people where they can go for medical help over the Easter break.

People are being urged to ensure they have enough medication to last them over the four-day bank holiday period and reminded that A&E may not be the best place to go for help.

Dr Tim Wilkinson, chairman of the Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group, said: ‘Easter is traditionally a difficult time for some patients, and also for the NHS. People can often be caught out by the four-day weekend, and not know where to turn if they need medicine, advice or treatment.

‘A few basic precautions can help make sure you are ready for most things – order repeat prescriptions in plenty of time, keep your medicine cabinet stocked, and know when pharmacies or other NHS services are open.’

People are advised to use the NHS 111 number for non-urgent medical advice and make use of walk-in centres and minor injuries units.

The times are given for Good Friday, Easter Sunday and then Easter Monday:
