Healthcare services over the bank holiday weekend

Many of us are looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend ahead – and GPs in Kensington & Chelsea and Queen’s Park & Paddington are asking patients to make the most of the extra day off work by using the most appropriate NHS service if they need medical help or advice.

If you need to use NHS services over the bank holiday, using the right one can ensure that you get the fastest, most appropriate treatment.  Whilst many people automatically head to A&E when something goes wrong, this is usually not the best option, particularly for minor problems such as coughs, colds, strains and sprains.

A&E is for serious accidents and emergencies.  If you’ve sprained your ankle, cut your finger or are suffering with a cough or cold, you will get faster and more appropriate advice elsewhere.  

Other NHS services available over the bank holiday are:

  • Self-care – people suffering from minor ailments such as coughs, colds and grazes should treat themselves at home or visit their local pharmacy;
  • Pharmacies – pharmacists are qualified to offer advice on health issues and medication as well as treat headaches, upset stomachs and other common illnesses. They can also sometimes issue you with an emergency supply of your repeat medication without you having to speak to a doctor.  A list of bank holiday opening hours for pharmacies in West London CCG can be found below.
  • GP out-of-hours service –GP out-of-hours services are available on the usual surgery number or by calling NHS111, and are staffed by doctors and nurses who can offer advice or, if necessary, treatment at home or in a local health centre;
  • NHS 111 –free phone service available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It offers a one-stop number for patients with urgent, but not life-threatening symptoms;
  • Urgent Care Centre (UCC) and Walk-in Centre - with no appointment necessary, your local centres are staffed by doctors and nurses who are available to deal with minor illnesses and injuries, such as cuts, burns, sprains.  A list of urgent care/ walk-in centres in or near West London CCG can be found below.
