Derbyshire Christmas Pharmacy Opening Times

Published 20/12/2016

As the Christmas holidays approach it’s important to remember that not all pharmacies will be open over the whole Christmas period.

Ken Deacon medical director for NHS England, North Midlands said: 

“A lot of people don’t realise how useful their pharmacy can be and they can help you with more than you might think.  Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems, particularly winter illnesses such as sore throats and runny noses.

“As most GP surgeries will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day we would also encourage patients to order any medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”

Pharmacy opening hours in Derbyshire can be found on the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk) along with information on walk-in centres, urgent care centres or minor injuries units. Patients can type in their postcode on the website to find their nearest services.

As 1st January is not a Bank Holiday, all pharmacies will be open or closed in line with their normal working hours for Sundays.
