Unlike most years, GP practice services in North East Lincolnshire will be operating on both Good Friday and Easter Monday. This support will be in line with the way general practice services are currently being delivered in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The current coronavirus restrictions mean you should not attend a GP surgery unless you have been told to do so.
If patients need medical help for anything other than symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough) on the Bank Holidays they should ring their own practice for advice. The telephone advice may be provided by your own practice or they may have made arrangements with another practice to provide this support. If, following telephone triage, it is deemed they need to be seen, individual practices will either be seeing patients at their own premises or they will have made arrangements with another practice to see them.
If patients have coronavirus symptoms they should call 111 or use the 111 coronavirus service.
Patients will also be able to access pharmacies on Good Friday and Easter Monday.
Practices will be closed as usual on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday, patients should ring 01472 256256 for urgent medical enquiries (not coronavirus) and 111 if they have coronavirus symptoms.
