Many pharmacies across Swindon and Shrivenham will be closed, or will open later and close earlier than usual, on Monday 28 May because of the late spring bank holiday. 

Patients should check the opening times of their nearest pharmacy before the long weekend, especially if important medication needs ordering or collecting.

As GP surgeries will also be closed on Monday 28 May, patients are encouraged to use either NHS111, the Urgent Care Centre at the Great Western Hospital or the Walk-in Centre at the new NHS Swindon Health Centre on Islington Street for any urgent healthcare issues. 

In an emergency situation, where there is a genuine threat to life, patients should visit the nearest Emergency Department or call an ambulance using 999.
