The list of what we can treat at Periville is extensive. We are a modern prescribing clinic that offers NHS treatments in-store so you don’t have to visit your GP for many minor ailments.
This list gives an example of what minor ailments we treat in our pharmacy clinic:
Insect bites and stings
Thrush (Oral and Vaginal)
Warts and verrucae
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.
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, Pharmacy does not have waiting times as many GP surgeries do. Visiting your friendly high street pharmacy is quicker and easier plus we open on Saturdays!
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!
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.
Visit us in on of our branches or you can phone us first. We have private consultation rooms available should you prefer to be discrete. We’re a friendly team of pharmacy professionals dedicated to improving the health of the Grimsby community.
