GP and pharmacy services over May Bank Holiday weekend

Opening times for pharmacies in Epping, Harlow and Uttlesford this May Bank Holiday…

While GP practices will be closed over the May Bank Holiday weekend (May 29-31), you can still seek medical advice and arrange urgent GP consultations by calling NHS111.

You will be triaged for the most appropriate service. This may include a telephone/video consultation or a face-to-face consultation.

If it is an urgent medical enquiry, you should call NHS111 first and you will be signposted to the most appropriate service.

In a life or limb threatening emergency you should call 999.

There will also be a change to pharmacy opening times across west Essex.
