During the August bank holiday weekend (24 to 26 August 2019), local residents in Richmond will have access to a range of healthcare services through extended access GP appointments and urgent treatment centres – accessible by calling 111 over the weekend or walking-in at Teddington Memorial Hospital.
Those with urgent medical issues can call NHS 111 to speak to a fully trained adviser, 24 hours a day. Advisors can connect callers to a nurse, emergency dentist or GP and can arrange face-to-face appointments.
Local residents are also reminded to stock up on repeat prescriptions before the weekend but if you do need to visit a pharmacy, a full list of their opening hours over the August bank holiday is given below. Pharmacists are a great resource and can help with a wide variety of minor health issues.

Accident and emergency departments are for seriously ill people with life threatening conditions, so we would encourage you to use alternative health services if the issue isn’t an emergency.
