Following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II the government has confirmed that Monday 19 September will be a bank holiday.
Urgent procedures & appointments will go ahead as planned this Monday. However, any patient appointments or procedures affected by the bank holiday will be contacted directly, and their appointment rescheduled as quickly as possible.
We urge anyone who has an appointment with Alder Hey to still attend unless they have been told otherwise.
The NHS remains open for you this bank holiday weekend, if have an urgent care need please don’t wait. Reach out for help by contacting NHS 111 online for urgent medical help. Our Emergency Department will be open as usual.
Some local pharmacies may have different opening hours during a bank holiday. Search “find a pharmacy NHS” to find an open pharmacy near you.
If you need urgent dental treatment this bank holiday, contact your regular dentist, if you cannot contact your dentist use NHS 111 online for information about your local out of hours service.
By re-stocking medicine cabinets, knowing when your GP practice is open, and planning ahead for repeat prescriptions, you can ensure you have everything you need ahead of the bank holiday weekend.
You can order your medication using the NHS App, or through their GP practice, which may also have an online service.
For all other urgent health needs over the bank holiday, contact NHS111 online at www.111.nhs.uk or by phoning 111.
