Paul Twomey, medical director for NHS England Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “It is vital that those with long term conditions or who have regular medication make sure they have their prescriptions so they do not run out over the weekend.

“Also if you need advice over the weekend your local pharmacy can help you with more than you might think.

“Pharmacists offer expert, confidential advice and treatment for many minor health problems.”
