Get prepared this Easter bank holiday weekend

25th March 2015

People across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are being encouraged to get prepared for the Easter bank holiday and make sure they have sufficient stock of any prescription medicine they might need.

As many GP surgeries will not be open from Good Friday (3 April) to bank holiday Monday (6 April), it is important that those who make use of repeat prescriptions check now to ensure that their supply will last until at least Tuesday 7 April.
