Pharmacists across Milton Keynes have announced their festive opening hours.

People are encouraged to remember that pharmacists can offer advice on common illnesses and the best medicines to treat them; visiting a pharmacy can save you time in the waiting room and help you to feel better faster.

Sarah Whiteman, medical director for NHS England in the South Midlands, said: “Your local pharmacy an help you with more than you might ink. Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.”

“Many pharmacies will remain open over the Christmas holidays, when other services are often unavailable.

“As most GP surgeries will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day we would also encourage patients order any medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”
