Medicines and Prescribing

Pharmacy Christmas opening times revealed

East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELR CCG) can reveal pharmacy opening hours for patients over the festive period.

Dr Aly Rashid, Medical Director for NHS England in Leicestershire and Rutland, said:

“A lot of people don’t realise how useful their pharmacy can be and they can help you with more than you might think. Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems, particularly winter illnesses such as sore throats and runny noses.

“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 medication they need in plenty of time so they have a good supply during the festive period.”

Pharmacy opening hours for East Leicestershire and Rutland are as follows:
