Pharmacy opening times over the holiday


As we prepare for the Christmas and New Year period, we are sharing important information about how Lambeth residents can access health services if they need them. 

Lambeth residents are advised to remember to stock up on repeat prescriptions before the Christmas break begins. If you do need to visit a pharmacy, a full list of their opening hours can be downloaded online. Information about pharmacies open in Lambeth is available below.

Although not every GP practice will be open over the holidays, Londoners will be able to book routine GP appointments in the evenings, weekends and over the bank holiday thanks to improved access to GP services in the city. 

London has become the first area in the country to offer everyone access to GP services seven days a week, with additional appointments available in the evenings and at weekends. These appointments will be available all through the seasonal period (including Christmas Day). You can book an appointment by contacting your GP practice in the first instance or 111.

Over the Christmas period, you can also ring NHS 111 if you urgently need medical help or advice, but it is not an emergency. The service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
