Ahead of the Easter holiday this weekend, patients in North West London are asked to make sure their medicine cabinets are fully stocked and they have their prescription medications. Many minor illnesses and injuries can be treated easily at home if you are prepared.
Some healthcare services will be open for people that need advice or access to healthcare over the weekend.
Certain pharmacies will be open across Hillingdon over Easter and can help with advice on many common illnesses. Information on pharmacy opening times for the borough can be found here.
