Thursday 21 December 2017. Surrey pharmacies that are open during the Christmas and new year period can be found here. The NHS is urging people to seek advice from a pharmacist at the first sign of feeling unwell this Christmas, even if it's just a cough or a cold. The aim is to prevent people getting worse and potentially having to go to their GPs and/or to A&E, and thus helping to reduce pressure on already busy A&E and GP services, which need to be available to look after the sickest people.
In all areas there will also, for the first time, be GPs that will be open from 8am to 8pm for urgent appointments. Contact your GP practice for more information.
