VE Day bank holiday: GP practice services in North East Lincolnshire
GP practice services in North East Lincolnshire will be operating on Friday (Early May Bank Holiday/VE Day). 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 Holiday they should ring their own practice for advice. The telephone advice may be provided by their 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 online service 111.nhs.uk/covid-19/.
Patients will also be able to access pharmacies. Please check the CCG website (www.northeastlincolnshireccg.nhs.uk) for details.
After normal hours patients should ring 01472 256256 for urgent medical enquiries (not coronavirus) and 111 if they have coronavirus symptoms.
