NHS England have issued the following message:   where to get help:

If you need medical help during the Bank Holiday weekend, please choose the right healthcare service to get the care you need and to enable the NHS to help the greatest number of people.

If your injury or illness is not life-threatening, please use:

  • Urgent Treatment Centres for minor conditions such as sprains, strains, broken bones, minor burns and wounds – contact 111 for a timed appointment or just turn up (however, you may wait longer than if you had a timed appointment). UTCs are open every day, including Bank Holidays and can be found at:
    • Gosport War Memorial Hospital, 8am-10pm
    • Petersfield Hospital, 8am-8pm
    • St Mary’s Hospital, 8am-8pm
  • Pharmacies for expert advice on conditions such as headaches, aches and pains or an upset stomach. Pharmacies may be closed or have different opening times over the Bank Holiday – find out which local pharmacies are open near you, so you can get the medicines and advice you need.
  • Visit 111.uk or call 111 for urgent medical help that isn’t an emergency, or if you’re not sure where to go – advisers can offer advice and direct you to the right service.
  • Call 999 or attend ED for life-threatening or serious emergencies, however, anyone attending the Emergency Department at Queen Alexandra Hospital without a serious emergency will be directed to another, more appropriate service for their needs.
