Several community pharmacies in the region are set to continue opening over the Easter bank holiday weekend, it has been confirmed.

NHS Norfolk and Waveney has commissioned more than a dozen community pharmacies to open their doors over the Easter break.

While the chemists will be operating on limited opening hours, the hope is that the move will help ease pressure on hospital emergency departments.

The move will see some pharmacies open both Easter Sunday and Monday, while others will only open one of these days.

However, other pharmacies may opt to open on a voluntary basis on Good Friday and Easter Monday as well - with most continuing ordinary opening times on Saturday.

The opening hours are as follows:

Easter Sunday:

  • Lime Pharmacy, Thetford: noon to 4pm
  • The Clock Pharmacy, King's Lynn: 10am to 2pm
  • Dereham Pharmacy:10am to 2pm
  • Fakenham Pharmacy: noon to 4pm
  • David Jagger, Wells: 8am to noon
  •  North Walsham Pharmacy: noon to 4pm
