Get ready for busy period medically

THE Northern NSW Local Health District has reminded people to plan medical appointments well in advance and to fill prescriptions early during the busy holiday season.

Chief executive Chris Crawford said it was more difficult to see a doctor during the Christmas period.

It is also a busy time for emergency departments.

"While we wouldn't turn anyone away, our priority is to treat the most serious cases first," he said.
