North Cumbria Easter Period

Please Note – This information includes all South Cumbria and Lancashire pharmacies opening over the Easter period. For South Cumbria pharmacies, please refer to Morecambe Bay CCG.


With more people using online services due to COVID-19, it is important to keep the opening times on your NHS website profile up to date and to reflect any temporary closures.

To help you, we have created guidance on how to manage temporary closures on your NHS website profile.

Guidance for temporary closures

Temporary closures of 1-4 days

You should use the ‘Bank holidays and other days’ section to indicate which days you are closed. The advantage of this approach is that your profile will automatically revert back to your standard opening hours at the end of your closed period.

Temporary closures of more than 4 days

Longer closures of more than four days should be managed by deleting your standard opening times on your profile. With no opening times set, your pharmacy will be identified as ‘closed’. However, you must remember to change your opening times back when you re-open.

For more information, see our step-by-step guide.
Good Friday and Easter Monday opening times

Please remember to update your NHS website profile(s) to reflect changes to your opening times on 10 April 2020 (Good Friday) and 13 April 2020 (Easter Monday)

Further guidance on bank holiday opening hours is available on the PSNC website
If you have any questions, please contact the NHS website service desk.
