Monday 19 September Bank Holiday – GP Practice Closure

Our GP practice will be closed on Monday 19 September 2022, following the announcement that this will be a national bank holiday to mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral. We will reopen as usual on Tuesday 20 September 2022.

There will be ongoing access to general practice services on Monday 19 September through GP Care Wakefield.

Simply call your usual practice number and you will be transferred to speak to a trained clinician. They will assess your problem and, if necessary, you will be offered a same-day appointment.

If you have a pre-booked GP practice appointment for Monday 19 September, we will contact you to rearrange your appointment.

We ask that you ensure you have enough of their usual repeat medication to last for the extended weekend. All requests for repeat medication should be submitted as soon as possible to give enough time to process them before the coming weekend. 

For information about many common illnesses and injuries, symptoms and treatments, and advice about what to do, when to get help and which NHS service to use, visit the NHS website: nhs.uk.

Some pharmacies will be open on Monday. You can drop in for expert advice on many common illnesses such as headaches, sore throats and aches and pains, and there is no need to book an appointment. 

Pharmacies can also give you help and information on which medicines you can buy over the counter to help manage your illness. To find a pharmacy, visit the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/pharmacy/find-a-pharmacy
