It's not just Santa Claus who will be hard at work this festive season, plenty of pharmacists across Swindon will be on hand to offer help and support across Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. 

People needing medical advice, help with a prescription or details of where to go for further care or treatment, will be able to call in on a number of pharmacies in Swindon on the days when many others in the town will be closed. 

Sparcells Pharmacy, Swindon Pharmacy, Hawthorne Pharmacy and Facechoice Pharmacy will all be open on Christmas Day, while others, including many of the pharmacies inside larger supermarkets and shopping centres, will be open on Boxing Day and New Year's Day. 

Patients are advised that most pharmacies open on the bank holidays will have reduced opening hours.
