Order prescriptions early

PATIENTS are being advised to order their repeat prescriptions in advance of the extended Jubilee Bank Holiday and to contact their usual GP surgery number when their local practice is closed over the long weekend.

Health bosses are warning patients that pharmacies will be either shut or open for limited hours over the Bank Holiday period, so anyone expecting to collect a repeat prescription should call in ahead of the Bank Holidays on Monday June 4 and Tuesday June 5 to ensure they don’t run out of vital medicines.

Ilkeston’s walk in centre will operate its normal opening hours of 8am to 8pm seven days a week.

The minor injury unit will also operate as normal and be open 24 hours.
