NHS 24 is calling on Bankies to remember to check their repeat prescription in time for the Easter.
This year, Easter falls between Friday, April 14, and Monday, April 17, and while some GP surgeries may be open, others will be closed.
The reminder comes as part of the national Be Healthwise campaign to encourage people to look after their own healthcare during the holidays.
John McAnaw, NHS 24’s head of pharmacy, said: “It’s important people remember to look after themselves over Easter and make sure they don’t run out of medicines. Having the right medicines to treat minor ailments is part of this, and people should make sure they have some self care remedies to help treat common spring illnesses already in the home.”
“Things like paracetamol, ibuprofen and indigestion remedies are great additions to the medicine cabinet over the springtime.
He added: “Check what you have, and order only what you need and collect it in plenty of time.”
