Parsons Heath Medical Practice


Opening times of pharmacies across North East Essex on

Bank Holiday Monday: 28th August

Dr Prashant Arora, Clacton GP and elected member at the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “Pharmacies are the ideal place over the bank holiday weekend to get over the counter remedies or tips on how to treat minor problems such as coughs and colds or ailments like bumps and grazes.  Conditions like these really do not need a visit to a doctor or a hospital.”
