The bank holiday for the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton on 29 April brings the second four-day weekend in a row.
But warm weather and careful planning have meant practices have not struggled to cope as much as feared.
GPC deputy chairman Dr Richard Vautrey said: ‘It has been busy but not as bad as we anticipated. The good weather has helped – lots of people are away and the sunshine means people feel well and are less likely to visit their GP.
‘Practices have a lot of experience coping with bank holidays and their systems have worked well.’
He said high demand for repeat prescriptions had meant practices needed to plan carefully.
