Following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II the government has confirmed that Monday 19 September 2022 will be a Bank Holiday. If you have a routine scheduled appointment on Monday, it will be cancelled and we’ll be in contact with you to re-schedule.

Our urgent, 7-day per week services will continue to run. If your appointment is with the Community Children’s Nursing team for a blood test, your scheduled appointment will still be going ahead.

CAMHS Phoenix will be open for usual Bank Holiday hours and the CAMHS Rapid Response team will be available to provide mental health crisis support.

By re-stocking medicine cabinets, knowing when your GP practice is open and planning ahead for repeat prescriptions, you can ensure you have everything you need ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

You can order your medication using the NHS App, or through your GP practice, which may also have an online service.
