Despite what some people believe GP practices are only closed on the three bank holidays; Christmas day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day and open as normal the rest of the time.

If you need urgent advice the NHS 111 service will be open with health professionals ready to take calls.

Dr Adam Janjua, a local GP and chair of NHS Fylde and Wyre CCG said: “Health services don’t stop over Christmas with thousands of health professionals coming to work across the Fylde Coast while other people are tucking in to their turkey.

“Although GP practices and some pharmacies close on the Bank Holidays we make sure there are services available if you need them. But we do have to ask people to try to keep them free and only use the urgent and emergency services if it really is an emergency.”
