Alternatively if you are getting on well, you may need to consider how you will access your usual contraception while your GP is closed.  Prescriptions for the pill may be obtained via telephone consultation/electronic prescription, but if you rely on a method that requires face to face contact there may be some changes.  Speak to your GP to discuss your options to ensure your protection doesn’t lapse.  Emergency contraception will continue to be available from pharmacies.
