Although some doctor surgeries may be operating shorter opening hours, there are other healthcare options available.

Dr Alistair Lipp, director of public health at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, said: “People will still be able to use the Yarmouth walk-in centre called NHS Greyfriars or if you have a cut, sprain or strain you can go the minor injury unit at Beccles.”

The centre in Greyfriars Way, Yarmouth, is open from 8am to 8pm every day over the Easter break.

The minor injury unit at Beccles Hospital in St Mary's Road, Beccles, is open from 8am to 8pm every day.

The minor injury unit at Patrick Stead Hospital in Halesworth will be closed over the four days.

Dr Lipp added: “Medical advice is also available by calling NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or on the website www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk.”

People can also go their local pharmacies, which will operate normal opening hours on Saturday.

Many pharmacies will also be open during the Easter break:

Boots at Gapton Hall Retail Park in Yarmouth will be open on Good Friday, 8am to midnight, Easter Sunday 10.30am to 4.30pm and Easter Monday 8.30am to 12midnight.
