Pharmacy premises must exhibit a notice, based on information provided by NHS England, at times when the premises are not open. Where practicable the notice should be legible from outside the pharmacy premises, specifying the addresses of other NHS pharmacies and the days on which and times at which drugs and appliances may be obtained from those addresses (The National Health Service (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services Regulations 2013 Schedule 4, Part 3 paragraph 23 (4) b).

The pharmacy opening hours across the Midlands region can also be accessed by patients and healthcare professionals at www.england.nhs.uk/midlands/nhs-england-and-nhs-improvement-midlands-work/bank-holiday-pharmacy-opening times/  which will be available shortly.

Pharmacy contractors are expected to have updated their own DoS profile, if this has not been done, pharmacies will need to request emergency profiling changes by the DoS team by phoning 0300 0200 363.
