If you run out of your medicine outside normal opening hours over the festive period and need some urgently, there are a few ways to get an emergency supply quickly, including if you’re away from home.

Whether you have a prescription to hand or not, NHS Choices has all the information you need to access medicines out-of-hours, ranging from finding your local pharmacy, contacting NHS 111 or finding your local walk-in centre.

In extreme cases, they may even be able to help you locate your local accident and emergency (A&E) unit.
