Hull and East Riding residents are encouraged to ensure they are prepared for the upcoming bank holiday to mark the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and reminded which NHS services will be available.
Urgent Treatment Centres (UTC) and out of hours GP services across Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire will remain open. However, to allow staff the opportunity to pay their respects with the nation, GP practices and most pharmacies will be closed on Monday 19 September.
By re-stocking medicine cabinets, knowing when your GP practice is open and planning ahead for repeat prescriptions, you can ensure you have everything you need ahead of the bank holiday weekend.
Some pharmacies will remain open over the holiday to ensure you can access services if necessary. From Thursday 15 September pharmacy bank holiday opening times will be published online.
