Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

Res­i­dents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing warned to check their re­peat pre­scrip­tions over Easter.

This year, Easter falls be­tween Fri­day, April 14 and Mon­day, April 17 and while some GP surg­eries may be open, some 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.

NHS 24’ s head of phar­macy, John McA­naw said: “It’s im­por­tant peo­ple re­mem­ber to look af­ter them­selves over Easter and don’t run out of medicines.

“Hav i n g the r ight 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. This will mean peo­ple have some medicines to hand when they need to use them.”
