URGENT ACTION – Pharmacy Opening Times for the two May Bank Holidays

April 29, 2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement  has now published the final door posters to print and display the opening times for community pharmacies over the two May Bank Holidays.

  • 3 May 2021
  • 31  May 2021


This is available on their regional website.

The opening times have been collated from the Directory of Services (DoS) system on 29 March 2021 and directly from pharmacies. A draft version of these posters was sent out to all pharmacies for a sense check on 14th April 2021 and a reminder was also sent on 20 April 2021. Please therefore be aware, that these posters cannot be altered at this late stage.


Please ensure that the relevant poster is printed and displayed in a prominent position, to ensure that patients are aware of pharmacy opening and closing times for the dates stated above. Please also ensure your opening times are correctly reflected within your profiles on www.nhs.uk (previously NHS Choices) and the Directory of Services (DoS).


If you have any queries (but no amendments) please e-mail england.pharmacyeast@nhs.net.
