IF you run out of medication, especially prescription medication, over the extended Easter bank holiday (19-21 April) some pharmacies in Tameside and Glossop will be open.
Your local pharmacy is the place to go to get any prescription medicines and clinical advice for minor health concerns.
As well as helping with common illnesses – like sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains – and provide advice on over-the-counter medicines.
Most local pharmacies have consultation rooms for private conversations.
Your pharmacist can also talk to you confidentially without anything being noted in your medical records, which some people may prefer.
Getting advice from a local pharmacist is the best first step for a minor health concern.
Patients are advised to telephone their usual pharmacy before travelling as opening hours may vary during the bank holiday weekend.
