Healthcare bosses in Herefordshire are reminding people that throughout the extended Jubilee bank holiday weekend the NHS remains open and available to anyone who needs it.

The public are reminded that if they need medical help, but it is not a life-threatening emergency, there are options available that can help.

People are reminded to think NHS 111 first, this means calling 111 or visiting 111.nhs.uk for any urgent but not life-threatening illnesses or injuries.

Dr Ian Tait, GP and Chair of NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCG said: “It’s important to plan ahead and make sure you’re fully prepared for the Jubilee weekend.

“We are seeing increased pressure on all our services and are asking people for their support – to access the right NHS service for their need. If you need help when your local GP Surgery is not open, you can call 111, which is a free NHS Service and can quickly direct you to the right health service, including out of hours GP appointments. Pharmacists can also help with a range of common conditions and minor injuries.”
