Your pharmacy VE Day, May Bank Holiday opening times


If you become unwell over the May bank holiday on Friday, 8 May, your pharmacy is a great place to visit for professional advice on ailments, as well as providing qualified health advice on everyday illnesses and answering any questions about prescribed and over-the-counter medicines. 

However, you must avoid pharmacies if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 if you have:

  • a dry, persistent cough
  • fever
  • shortness of breath

Be patient, all pharmacies are under immense pressure and working around the clock to ensure that you get what you need and please order medicines as normal. There is no need to stockpile medicines, order extra prescriptions and buy more over the counter medicines than you need.

Make sure you know the opening times by visiting the Tees Valley CCG website - https://teesvalleyccg.nhs.uk/your-pharmacy-ve-day-may-bank-holiday-opening-times/ - or downloading the attached pdf
