A booklet offering advice on how to use the health service over the Easter period has been produced by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
The booklet ‘Easter Guide to your health services’ is being distributed widely throughout GP surgeries, health centres, clinics, pharmacies and opticians in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area.
It includes vital information such as the opening hours of pharmacies and how to access a GP when surgeries are closed.
Dr Norrie Gaw, clinical director of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s out-of-hours service, said: “Although GP and dental surgeries will close for the two public holidays on Good Friday and Easter Monday, many other health services remain open. This guide lets you know what to do if someone becomes unwell and can’t wait for their GP surgery or dental surgery to re-open after Easter.”
