NHS Greater Manchester’s Get To Know Where To Go campaign was launched in Winter 2022 and has been a trusted vehicle for carrying important and pertinent messaging around appropriate use of NHS services. The campaign focuses on enabling better, more effective decisions with straightforward and timely advice.
With lots going on in the run up to a bank holiday it’s easy to forget the smaller things like making sure you are well stocked up in your medicine cabinet or getting your repeat prescription in to the pharmacy in good time. However, your local NHS is urging us all to not leave it too late ahead of the upcoming bank holiday and days following where industrial action will again see significant pressure on our NHS services.
Every bank holiday the NHS 111 phone service sees huge increases in people contacting it about repeat prescriptions. Over the Jubilee Bank Holiday last year the service saw calls rising from 801 calls in the three days before, to 4,287 in the three days after – A stark reminder that we all need to play our part and get prepared.
By re-stocking medicine cabinets, knowing when your GP practice is open and planning ahead for repeat prescriptions, people can ensure they make the most of a Bank Holiday and are well-prepared for the busy period anticipated the following week.
People are also reminded that:
The local pharmacy can offer advice and treatment for lots of minor illnesses and ailments – without the need for an appointment. Many will still be open over the bank holiday, but some will operate with reduced hours.
Dental support can be accessed via the Greater Manchester dental helpline (0333 332 3800), which is available from 8am to 10pm every day, including weekends and bank holidays for those who need help urgently when their practice is closed, or do not have a regular dentist.
