Healthwatch Norfolk has created this page to give up-to-date information about opening times for services over Easter. There is information about:


Out-of-hours NHS services

People are asked to only attend the emergency department if it is absolutely necessary. The department can help if you are suffering chest pain, difficulty breathing, bleeding that will not stop or signs of a stroke. You should always call 999 or go to an emergency department in those circumstances.

If you need help that is not urgent, please call 111 or use 111 online by clicking here. They can refer you to the best place to help you. The team can provide health advice, connect you with a healthcare professional, arrange a face-to-face appointment including home visits and out-of-hours appointments, or give you an arrival time for an emergency department.

Medication and prescriptions

Make sure you and your loved ones have enough supply of prescribed medicines to last you over this period. Allow enough time to place your order.

You can see more about the process here.
