HERE’S a list of pharmacies that will be open this bank holiday.
People are advised to use 24/7 advice line NHS 111, visit a walk-in centre or minor injuries unit, or go to a pharmacy, rather than the A&E department at Queen Alexandra Hospital – unless it’s an emergency.
Dr Jim Hogan, the urgent care lead for the Portsmouth, Fareham and Gosport, and South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, said: ‘The combination of the bank holiday and end-of-school holidays could make it a busy time for the emergency department, with the possibility a lot more people will be out and about.
‘If I can just repeat our usual request, please don’t just go to A&E just because you know it’s there.
‘We need A&E kept clear for emergency care as there continues to be high demand for services at QA.’
