A number of West Cheshire pharmacies are set to open on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – when GP practices are closed.

All West Cheshire GP practices are set to open as normal from Wednesday, December 27 to Friday, December 29 inclusive and from Tuesday, January 2, 2018 onwards.

Clinical chair of NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group Dr Chris Ritchieson said: “It is vital that a wide range of healthcare options are available for people in West Cheshire all year round – including on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

“It is also worth remembering that pharmacists are expert healthcare professionals who can provide specialist advice for a wide range of health conditions, and you don’t need to book an appointment to see them.”
