We’re being urged to plan ahead for the Easter break in Eastbourne.
With many NHS services, such as GPs and pharmacies offering reduced hours over the bank holiday, we’re being advised to get repeat prescriptions in on time, to ensure we have enough medication to cover the break.
We’re also being encouraged to find out which pharmacies will be open, should we need them and know what to do should we feel unwell.
