A NUMBER of pharmacies will be open on bank holiday Monday for people with minor illnesses.
Pharmacy staff are highly-trained and experienced, offering expert advice and treatment for all kinds of conditions.
Most can also offer a separate consulting area if you need to have a private conversation.
Treatment for minor injuries and conditions can also be accessed at St Mary’s Treatment Centre, Milton Road, Portsmouth, between 8am and 10pm on weekends and bank holidays.
The majority of patients can be seen and treated by nurse practitioners and paramedic practitioners who will assess clinical needs.
