Bank holiday weekend - choose the right care

If you experience any illness or injury this bank holiday weekend, make sure you choose the right care for your need. 

You have access to a number of different care options in Kensington & Chelsea and Queen’s Park & Paddington. You can call NHS 111 if you need help choosing the right service – for example, if you’re not sure if you need to go to A&E or not. You can also call 111 if you need expert health advice very fast.

Some people find that changes in the weather spark changes in their health. If you experience hayfever or asthma, stay prepared by visiting your pharmacist for medication such as nasal sprays or antihistamines, which they are able to provide as well as most other common medication. Your local pharmacist is highly qualified and can also provide expert advice on a range of illnesses.

It’s not just physical health that matters. If you’re feeling stressed, anxious or depressed there is help available to you in your area. Make an appointment with your GP or visit the Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust website for more information.

For illnesses and injuries that need treatment immediately but aren’t life-threatening, remember that there is no need to visit A&E. We have urgent care centres available at the following locations:

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Urgent Care Centre, 369 Fulham Road, London, SW10 9NH

Charing Cross Hospital Urgent Care Centre, Fulham Palace Road, London, W6 8RF

St Charles NHS Urgent Care Centre, St Charles Hospital, Exmoor Street, London, W10 6DZ.
