August Bank Holiday Opening Times
Both Adelaide street & Harris Medical will close at their normal time on Friday 25th August. Both surgeries will then re-open at 8am on Tuesday 29th August as both sites will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday (28th August).
Bank Holiday Care Options
Everyone is hoping for good weather for the bank holiday but if you become unwell for any reason it’s good to know what’s open over the weekend and which services to use to get the best care.
Bank holidays are notoriously busy for health services as GP practices are closed for the day and people aren’t sure where to turn to if they need advice. However, there are a number of options available and people are being urged to use the most appropriate service and not automatically go to A&E.
You should only call 999 or go to A&E if it is a serious or life threatening emergency. For less serious injuries or health concerns you can visit the Walk-in Centre on Whitegate Drive in Blackpool or the Same Day Health Centre on Dock Street in Fleetwood which are both open as normal throughout the bank holiday.
If you’re not sure you can call NHS 111 which will be able to advise you where to go.
Pharmacies are also an excellent place to seek medical advice for minor ailments. Pharmacists are trained professionals with a wealth of knowledge on how to treat all sorts of conditions. Though some may be closed over the bank holiday below is a list of those that are open on Monday 28 August.

Harris Medical Centre has a facelift.
If you have visited Harris Medical Centre over the last couple of weeks you may have noticed a distinct difference in the flooring throughout the surgery. A whole weekend was devoted to upgrading the surgery with a whole new floor and new lighting. We are very pleased with the results and hope that you will agree that it gives the surgery a brighter and more modern look. For those of you who have yet to see it, here are a couple of pictures of the new look waiting room:
