All Reading GP practices will be closed on Bank Holidays, however out of hours cover will be provided.
A useful number to call out of hours is 111 (the NHS non-emergency number). It’s fast, easy and free to speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask a series of questions to assess symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care.
