Be sure to stay healthy at Easter
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.”
