Community pharmacists should cooperate at a local level to ensure that adequate pharmacy services are available to provide continuity of care to citizens over the Christmas period.
On our website, we have a template notice available for downloading, which can be used to inform citizens of the pharmacy’s opening hours.
In response to queries from members regarding Christmas opening hours, we suggest the following arrangements:
- Christmas Eve Saturday 24 - Usual business hours
- Christmas Day Sunday 25 - Usual Public Holiday arrangements
- St Stephen’s Day Monday 26 - Usual Public Holiday arrangements
- Tuesday 27 December - Usual Public Holiday arrangements
- New Year’s Day Sunday 01 - Usual Public Holiday arrangements
