As the bank holiday approaches, health professionals in Suffolk are urging people to be prepared and avoid an unnecessary trip to A&E.

Keeping medicine cabinets filled with essentials like paracetamol and getting stocked up on any regular prescriptions are two simple ways to get ready for the long weekend.

Dr Christopher Browning, a GP in Long Melford and chairman of West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “By choosing the right health care option you will get treated more quickly and lessen the pressure on health staff over this busy weekend.”

Dr Mark Shenton, Stowmarket GP and chairman of Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group, encouraged people to utilise the number of pharmacies open over the holiday weekend, as well as the NHS 111 non-emergency line.

He said: “If you have forgotten to order your regular medicine from your GP and run out over the holiday period your pharmacist may be able to help by providing an emergency supply. Please remember to take your repeat slip or empty pack(s) with you to show the pharmacist what you usually take.”
