GP appointments will be available over the Easter bank holidays, even if your own doctor’s surgery is closed.

On Good Friday and Easter Monday, urgent GP appointments will be available between 9am and 4pm.

On Saturday and Easter Sunday, appointments are available between 8am and 8pm.

Dr Anil Mehta, GP and chair of Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group said A&E might not be the first “port of call” if you become unwell during the holidays.

“If you are ill or injured this Easter please remember that there are lots of ways to get urgent treatment in Redbridge which can often be a quicker and more appropriate way to get treatment than going to A&E,” she said.

“We need people to help us keep our local hospital emergency departments free to treat those with the most serious or life threatening illnesses or injuries, by choosing the right service this Easter.”

As well as GP appointments, a pharmacist can offer expert advice on how to best look after yourself with rest and over the counter treatments.
