We are maintaining services during the Royal Wedding
The Royal Wedding is taking place on Saturday 19 May, so Windsor and the surrounding areas are likely to be very busy with thousands of people going to witness the special occasion. We have been working hard to make sure there is minimum disruption to our local health care services and patients.
Due to the road closures planned from Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 May, it may take longer to get to our patients

Tips for keeping yourself safe and well if you are attending the event
• If it's hot and sunny, regularly apply generous amounts of sunscreen. Wear a hat and clothes that will keep you cool and covered
• Drink plenty of water or other soft drinks during the day to stay hydrated
• If you drink alcohol, eat well, and drink water or soft drinks in between alcoholic drinks
• You will probably be on your feet a lot and all viewing areas will only be accessible by foot, so be prepared for long walks from train stations or car parks. Bring comfortable shoes and plasters for blisters.
