How and where to access medical assistance and advice over the forthcoming bank holiday weekend has been issued by North Lincolnshire CCG.

Dr Margaret Sanderson, North Lincolnshire CCG Chair, advised: “Most GP surgeries will be closed over the weekend so, if you do need to contact medical services remember, in most instances people don’t need A&E or 999. Simply ring 111 for access to confidential advice and information over the phone 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

“You can also use 111 if you think you might need to see a GP and your doctor’s surgery is closed. You will get through to a fully trained call adviser, who is supported by experienced clinicians. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms and give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the right local service.

“Alternatively you can always pop to your local pharmacy for confidential and expert advice on common health conditions such as a cold or upset stomach. This helps the local NHS keep emergency services free for those that need them the most.

“You can often self-treat many minor illnesses and injuries at home by keeping your medicine cabinet and first aid kit well-stocked with medicines such as paracetamol and ibuprofen. Most simple ailments will begin to get better within a couple of days.”
