If you take regular medication, it is important to ensure you have enough in case you cannot leave your home.
Even if you don’t take regular prescribed medication from your GP, it is best to be prepared with essential medicines and supplies in case you get ill. Useful items include ibuprofen, paracetamol, plasters, thermometer and antiseptic cream.
It is important to order enough medication to last you during the Christmas and New Year period. In the event that you do run out of prescribed medication, please contact the Same Day Health Centre, GP out of hours service, your local pharmacist or NHS 111 who should be able to assist with an emergency supply.
