PATIENTS in South Derbyshire are being urged to plan ahead for the bank holiday weekend.

Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is advising people to contact their GP surgeries or pharmacy in plenty of time if they require repeat prescriptions.

Dr Sheila Newport, chairman of the CCG, said:"For those with long-term health problems, taking daily medication is an important part of their treatment, and many are at risk of suffering serious attacks or hospitalisation if medical supplies run out, a little bit of forward planning will really help."

To find out which pharmacies are open over the bank holiday weekend visit www.nhssouthernderbyshireccg.nhs.uk or call 101 if feeling unwell.
