Why come to Holdens Chemist Express 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.

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.
