Health officials have reminded people to check that they have enough medication to cover the Easter weekend.
GP surgeries will be closed on the Easter and May Bank Holidays, so residents have been asked to make sure they order any repeat prescriptions in good time.
Anyone who needs help for a minor health problem can get advice and treatment from the pharmacy, and no appointment is needed. Pharmacy opening hours over Easter and May Bank Holidays are available from the West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group’s (WECCG) website at westessexccg.nhs.uk
A WECCG spokesman said: “When your GP surgery is open, it should still be your first point of contact for all healthcare. If it is closed and you need advice or medical help fast (but it is not a 999 emergency) you should call 111.”
NHS 111 is now available in west Essex, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and 365 days of the year.
