HEALTH MATTERS: Don’t forget your prescription this bank holiday

Ahead of the Early May Bank Holiday, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, the local health board, would like to remind all patients requiring prescriptions written or fulfilled to contact their local GP and, or, pharmacy ahead of the weekend.

Most GP practices will be closed from Friday evening until Tuesday next week and some pharmacies are closed on Monday.

In the event you need to speak to a GP over the bank holiday and it cannot wait until your practice opens on Tuesday, please call NHS24 on 111 for advice.
