Published on: 28th April 2021

Bank Holidays can affect the opening hours of local pharmacies. Click here to see the opening hours for pharmacies in London which have been asked to open for longer hours on the May Bank Holiday.

If you need advice from your GP, please telephone your surgery as normal. Practices will be closed on the bank holiday but open at all other usual times and offering appointments between 8am and 6.30pm.

During the covid-19 pandemic, GPs are offering more appointments by telephone or video call to keep patients safe. Face to face appointments are of course available for those who need them.

If you need medical advice, please contact your GP in the first instance. If you are unable to get through, please use the online 111 service, which will direct you to the right service quickly. If you are unable to get online, you should dial 111. 

In a medical emergency, you should always dial 999.
