Help us help you be prepared for the bank holiday weekend

Hull and East Riding residents are encouraged to ensure they are prepared for the upcoming bank holiday, Monday 31 May 2021, and reminded which NHS services will be available.

Urgent Treatment Centres (UTC), out of hours GP services and some pharmacies across Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire will remain open. However, GP practices and most pharmacies will be closed on the bank holiday.

If you need medical help, the NHS is still here for you. Be prepared by checking your medicine supply and making sure you order any required prescriptions in good time.

Some pharmacies will be open on bank holiday Monday to ensure you can access services if necessary. You can find out which pharmacy is open near you by visiting www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-pharmacy.

If you need to access GP services on bank holiday Monday, routine appointments are available by contacting your GP if you live in Hull, or through Improving Access in the East Riding.

For urgent medical help, please use the NHS 111 online service (http://111.nhs.uk). If you cannot get online, call 111.

UTCs can treat minor ailments such as cuts, burns and suspected fractures, with no appointment necessary. Find out more about East Riding UTCs here and Hull UTCs here.

If you need mental health support, the Hull and East Riding Mental Health Response Service will remain operational over the bank holiday weekend. Individuals in crisis can access their services on 01482 301701.

If you are in a serious or life-threatening emergency, call 999.

NHS Hull and NHS East Riding of Yorkshire CCGs want to thank local NHS services for their continued support during this difficult and challenging time.
