Blackburn and Darwen Health Services Information over the Easter Holiday period Preston New Road minor illnesses holiday periods healthcare options emergency telephone service emergency department dial 999 dental practices care pharmacy blackburn with darwen Bank Holidays NHS Blackburn with Darwen is urging people to choose the right health services ahead of the upcoming Bank Holidays.

People are being advised to book routine doctors’ appointments and make provisions for collecting medicines and repeat prescriptions in advance due to the closure of GP and dental practices.

Over the bank holidays, healthcare options available include self-care pharmacy services who can be asked for advice for cases such as coughs, colds, sore throats and other minor illnesses.

You can also dial 111. NHS 111 is the new non-emergency telephone service for people who need urgent treatment for an illness or injury but it is not an emergency.

In absolute emergencies the Urgent Care Centre at Royal Blackburn Hospital is open 24 hours, seven days a week. For life threatening illnesses/injuries dial 999 or visit the emergency department at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

Due to the increased pressures on the health services over holiday periods it is imperative that patients make sensible use of the services available and ‘Choose Well.’ Where necessary phone 111 or seek the advice of your local pharmacist. Although running a reduced service, several pharmacies will remain open over the bank holidays. Full opening times can be downloaded below.

You can also access a web-based symptom checker at: www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/CheckSymptoms

For help finding an NHS Dentist or for urgent and routine care for patients, Blackburn and East Lancs Dental Services are available on 0845 533 3230.

The aim of the additional services is to try to ensure that people who don’t need to attend the hospital’s emergency department /Urgent Care Centre stay away, which will in turn ensure that people with more serious injuries or illnesses can be treated there.
