Prescription medicines

If you run out of your prescription medicines over the bank holiday, call 111 and ask for advice about how you may be able to access an emergency supply.

Urgent dental treatment
If you have an urgent dental problem and your usual dental practice is closed, call 111 and ask to speak to the Dental Advice Service.
