Minor Ailments Service:
It is estimated that every year, 50 million visits to the GP are made for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema and athlete's foot.
But by visiting Colne Road Pharmacy instead, you could save yourself time and trouble.
Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit us any time – just walk in.
Our Pharmacists can recognise many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that will help clear up the problem.
If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, we will recognise this and advise you to see your GP instead.
Minor ailment services
We run a minor ailment service, which means we can supply medicines for certain conditions on the NHS.
It means our pharmacist can supply medicines for this condition (eg pain).
If you're exempt from paying prescription charges – for example, because you're over 60 – you won't pay for the medicine at all.
