Stay Well Over the Festive Period

Now that the festive period is in full swing Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is advising patients that if they become unwell over the holidays, pharmacies will be open over Christmas and New Year.

While some of the region’s GP surgeries will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, some pharmacies will be open and are the place to go for treatment and advice on common illnesses and ailments, including colds, flu, and minor rashes.

If people need urgent help, but it’s not a 999 emergency, call NHS 111 or go online to 111.nhs.uk for advice and direction to the most appropriate service. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and calls are free.

It is also important that people check their medicine cabinets in preparation for winter should they become ill. Some things everyone should have in their medicine cabinet include:
