Wainwrights in Bishopstoke will be dispensing on Christmas Day

With an extended festive break this year the NHS has issued details of pharmacy opening hours in the Eastleigh area.

Between December 25 – 27 and January 1 – 2 most chemists in the borough will be closed with only Wainwrights in Bishopstoke opening on Christmas Day.

Julia Booth, Pharmacy Manager for NHS England (Wessex) said:

“It’s a good idea for people to make a note of the pharmacies in their area that will be open over the festive period, and where they can obtain their prescribed medication, advice or any other items needed to support individuals’ and families should the needs arise. If a patient requires medicines regularly, don’t forget to make sure to order and collect repeat prescriptions in good time ensuring they have enough medicine to cover the holiday period”.

While some pharmacies are directed by NHS England to open on Christmas Day, others may open voluntarily, and patients are advised to check by phone if the pharmacy is open before travelling.
