For patients that run out of prescription medication over the break and need an emergency supply, the advice is to go to NHS 111 online, where they will be able to signpost how to access their medication.

A list of local pharmacies that will be open over the bank holiday can be found on the NHS website.

Dr Abid Irfan, interim director of primary care at Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care Board, said: "Help yourself stay well over the bank holiday by making sure you have enough of your medication to see you through. Order your repeat prescription well in advance, especially if you're going away.

"If you do run out of your medication, NHS 111 online can offer advice on how to get an emergency supply. But it's always best to be prepared."
