Pharmacies Open Across Ayrshire Over The Easter Holiday Weekend

With GP practices being closed on Friday 29 March 2024 and Monday 1 April 2024, Ayrshire residents are being urged to check who to turn to if they need advice or support to cope with any common health concerns.



Roisin Kavanagh, Director of Pharmacy, explains:

“You can do several things to make sure you are prepared to deal with common illnesses over the bank holiday weekend.  Having a sufficient supply of medicines like paracetamol, sore throat, and cough remedies will help to relieve the symptoms of common ailments.


“If you take regular medication, you should check your existing supplies and only order what you need to see you through over the holiday weekend.  It is also a good idea to make sure you know when your local GP practice and community pharmacy are closed.  Please also take into consideration the time required by your local GP Practice and community pharmacy for processing prescription requests as this can add up to seven days”.
