Residents reminded where to access health advice over bank holiday

Leamington Editorial 24th Aug, 2020   0

RESIDENTS are being reminded where to get health advice if needed over the bank holiday weekend.

For non-urgent problems contact 111 or a pharmacy but in a life-threatening emergency 999 is available.

South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group chair Dr David Spraggett said: “The NHS is here for you if you need us. If you have any health concerns over the bank holiday and need advice, please use our 111 service or contact your local pharmacist.

“For minor ailments, make sure you keep your medicine cabinet well stocked with all the necessities, such as pain relievers, allergy tablets, daily medication plus a first aid kit of bandages, plasters and antiseptic wipes.




“Even though we are still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to call 999 in a life-threatening medical emergency, to help prevent serious conditions such as strokes and heart attacks.

“We hope you enjoy this bank holiday weekend, but do remember the importance of social distancing and to stay two metres away from people outside of your household or support bubble where you can, and to wear a face covering inside any public buildings.”
