Make sure you’re prepared for Easter

Make sure you’re prepared for Easter

NHS organisations in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are reminding patients that NHS 111 is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week over the holiday period to offer help to anyone with an immediate medical need.

This year many GP surgeries across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland will close for four days from Good Friday (March 30) through Easter Monday (April 2), before re-opening on Tuesday 3 April.

Dr James Ogle, GP in Leicestershire and clinical lead for West Leicestershire CCG said “NHS 111 is the best way to access care when it’s urgent, but not a 999 emergency, particularly when your GP is closed.

“They have trained call advisors, who will support you to access the right care for you. If you need to speak to a clinician over the phone then they will be able to connect you or arrange for them to call you back. If you need to be seen in person they will direct you to the right care for you, whether it’s an appointment at a City healthcare hub, an urgent care centre, or, if you can’t travel then they can arrange a home visit.”
