Make your Christmas happy and healthy in Wandsworth​

As Christmas approaches the NHS is urging local residents to check on their health to be ready for the holiday season.

Wandsworth Chief Pharmacist Nick Beavon said: "People with long term health conditions can be more vulnerable to winter illnesses, particularly if their prescription medication runs out. We're encouraging everyone to check they have enough medication to see them through the festive period."

People in Wandsworth needing urgent medical advice can also contact NHS 111 throughout the Christmas period or visit their local pharmacist for help treating minor ailments.

A full list of the opening hours of local pharmacies can be found here.
