The West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group is encouraging residents to visit pharmacies for minor illnesses, such as coughs, headaches and sickness.

People are also urged to ensure they have enough medication to last the bank holiday weekend.

Opening times for pharmacies have also been released. Boots in Saffron Walden will be open on Good Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm, and Easter Monday, 10am to 4pm.

Ropers in High Street, Great Dunmow, will be open throughout, on Friday, Easter Sunday and bank holiday Monday from 11am to noon.

The West Essex CCG’s weekend GP service will also be running for arranged appointments in Great Dunmow on all four days, from 8am to 2pm, and in Saffron Walden on Saturday, from 8am to 6pm, and Monday from 8am to 2pm.
