GPs in Tower Hamlets are urging people to only use A&E in an emergency if they fall ill during the spring bank holiday weekend.
The borough has two walk-in centres where residents can seek medical help for minor injuries that are urgent, but not life threatening, including suspected broken bones, cuts and rashes.
The GP-led services are open from 8am until 8pm seven days a week and are located at:
The Barkantine walk-in service in Westferry Road, Isle of Dogs (0207 510 4000).
St Andrews Health Centre in Hannaford Walk, Bromley-by-Bow (020 8980 1888).

Alternatively residents can call the 24-hours NHS service on 111, seek help from a local pharmacist or call Tower Hamlets out of hours GP service on 020 7377 7151
Sir Sam Everington, local GP and chair of NHS Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “It’s worth finding out in advance what services are on offer.”
