It is important to ensure that you always have enough supplies of any medicines you take regularly.

However, if you think you need a medicine when your local pharmacy is closed, an NHS 24 nurse advisor can assess how urgently you need the medicine and, if necessary, can arrange for your GP's Out of Hours service to contact you.
