Pharmacy opening hours for the August Bank Holiday (30 August)


A&E is for life-threatening situations such as a heart attack or stroke and for the care of people who show the symptoms of serious illness or who are badly injured. In a life-threatening emergency, always dial 999.

NHS 111

If you need medical advice fast but it’s not life-threatening then call NHS 111 and a fully trained adviser will be able to advise and suggest the best option for you.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Depending on the situation, the NHS 111 team can:

  • connect you to a nurse, emergency dentist or even a GP
  • arrange face-to-face appointments if they think you need one
  • assess if you need an ambulance and send one immediately if necessary
  • book time slots at all A&E departments across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington (north-central London) for those who need them.

If you’re advised to go to the hospital, it’s important to go.


If you or someone you care for feels unwell over the Bank Holiday period, you can visit one of the following pharmacies for advice on a range of minor illnesses and injuries such as colds and flu, sexual health and contraception, sickness and diarrhoea, cuts and grazes, and general health advice.
