Doctors in Northumberland are encouraging people in the county to plan their healthcare during the festive season.

With advice on common illnesses and the best medicines to treat them, visiting the pharmacist or phoning NHS 111 can save you time in the waiting room and help you feel better fast.

Dr Alistair Blair, chief clinical officer at NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “If you’re not feeling well over the Christmas period, please take some time to consider where you should go to find help.

“That could mean getting advice from your local pharmacy, or dialling NHS 111 for more urgent, but not life-threatening, matters. Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.

“And using pharmacies also takes the pressure off A&E departments in the region, freeing up staff there for real emergencies.”

Some pharmacies will remain open over the Christmas holidays, when other services are often unavailable.

Dr Blair added: “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 repeat prescriptions they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”

If you or your family are suffering from a more serious complaint, you can use the urgent care centres at Wansbeck or Hexham hospitals. They are open across the holidays. To check the right service for you, just call NHS 111, or visit www.nhs.uk/staywell
