​Keep healthy in Merton this August Bank Holiday


Residents in Merton are being encouraged to keep healthy this August Bank Holiday Monday 27 August.

  • Bookable GP hub appointments available every day over the Bank Holiday. These can be booked in advance by your practice or on the day by NHS 111
  • Advance and nurse appointments for those needing dressings are available

GP appointments available every day

Merton's GP hubs will be open over the bank-holiday weekend offering both urgent and same-day pre-bookable appointments from 8am to 8pm every day. 

To make an appointment call your GP surgery or call NHS 111.  NHS 111 is free to call and available 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

Nurse appointments will also be available if you need wound care or dressings changed.

Find your local pharmacy

Many of Merton's local pharmacies will also be open. Full details of opening hours in the borough can be found here. Your local pharmacy is a great source of expert advice for a wide range of minor illnesses including coughs, colds and hayfever and you won't need an appointment.

All Merton GP practices now offer GP services online and this includes being able to book appointments and to renew repeat prescriptions online. You can register for online services at your GP practice.

If you need treatment or health advice in Merton over the Bank Holiday call 111 to direct you to the right service for you. It is important that A&E does not become the first port of call for non-urgent treatment.

  • Enjoy your Bank Holiday with this checklist.
  • Ensure you have a first aid kit, paracetamol and a thermometer.
  • If you need help when your GP practice is closed, and it's not a 999 emergency, you can call NHS 111. This service is available 24 hours a day 365 days of the year.
  • If your condition is serious or a life threatening emergency, always dial 999 immediately or go to your nearest A&E department.
  • Visit the NHS Choices website or NHS 111 for further information.
