Minor Ailments

Pharmacy is a gateway to  NHS services. We can help and advise you on many conditions but we are also able to signpost you to the most suitable healthcare professional when this is required. The list of what we can treat at Midnight Pharmacy is extensive. We are a modern prescribing clinic that offers both NHS and private treatments covering treatment for many minor ailments in Bradford and Nottingham,

What we can treat

This list gives an example of what we treat on the NHS and what we can offer as private (paid for) treatments:

  • Athletes foot
  • Nasal congestion/blocked nose
  • Coughs
  • Earache
  • Headache
  • Hay fever
  • Sprains and strains
  • Temperature and fever
  • Sore throat
  • Teething
  • And more!

Some treatments are available on the NHS and others may only be available as private procedures. But your pharmacist will discuss treatment options with us so you can make an informed choice.

Why come to Midnight Pharmacy for minor conditions?

The benefit to you is the convenience of accessing treatment without having to see your GP first. This means you often don’t have to book an appointment. And even if you do, we don’t have waiting times as many GP surgeries do. Visiting your friendly high street pharmacy is quicker and easier plus we open on Saturday mornings!

Secondly, the NHS benefits. Being able to access treatment for minor conditions through your pharmacy eases the pressure off of GPs and A&E departments. So, you don’t need to visit a GP for a cough or lower back pain or pop into A&E for paracetamol!

Thirdly, many GPs will now refer you to a pharmacy for accessing healthcare for minor ailments. So you may find you can avoid a wasted journey to your GP by coming directly to a pharmacy instead.

But don’t worry. Our pharmacists are clinically trained to provide these treatments. Plus, we know when to refer you to your GP or to A&E. This way you know that you’re in the right place to receive the treatment you need.

Midnight Pharmacy is able to offer some of these treatments because we are part of the NHS Minor Ailments Scheme and the Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS).
