Streptococcal A throat infections, also known as “strep throat,” are one of the most commonly seen infections in children and teenagers. Symptoms include a sore throat, fever, inflamed tonsils, and swollen lymph nodes. Causes of strep throat vary but most often it is spread through direct contact with an infected person or object. It can also be transferred through airborne droplets from a sneeze or cough. While annoying and inconvenient, antibiotics are generally an effective treatment for streptococcal A throat infections.

Conjunctivitis is an infection of the conjunctiva membrane that covers the eyeball and lines the eyelid. It often causes redness and itching of the eyes, along with watery discharge. Conjunctivitis can either be caused by allergens such as pollen or dust, or can be bacterial or viral in nature. Bacterial and viral conjunctivitis are highly contagious and should not be shared through touching or coming into contact with infected mucous or matter from the eye. Treatment for conjunctivitis varies depending on causes so speak to one of our pharmacists for more information on how we can help.
Nitrofurantoin Tablets or Capsules – Ages 18-65
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of the urinary system, including the bladder, urethra, and kidneys. The most common symptoms of a UTI are a frequent need to urinate even when there is little urine and burning or pain during urination. Other symptoms can include cloudy or bloody urine, fever, abdominal cramping or pain, and an overall feeling of being unwell. UTIs are usually caused by bacteria that enter through the opening of the urethra. Although these infections can be uncomfortable and sometimes serious, acute uncomplicated lower urinary tract infections can be easily treated with antibiotics.
Otomize Ear Spray – Ages 2+
An ear infection, also known as otitis media, is an inflammation of the middle ear caused by bacterial or viral infection. Symptoms of a middle ear infection commonly occur in children, and may include tugging at the ear, fever, fussiness, fluid drainage from the ear, and disruption of hearing or balance. Common causes of an infection include colds, allergies, or conditions that weaken the immune system; however it is important to note that they may also occur after swimming or while flying on a plane due to changes in pressure.

The proof is in our reviews
I wanted to use a testing service within the Preston area in case we needed to visit the clinic for any testing pre or post our travel to Portugal. As it turned out, that wasn’t necessary, we did all testing remotely. This amazing company went above and beyond in getting us tested at Liverpool airport on a Sunday evening so that we made our flight.
A very personal service, giving clear instructions, prompt responses to questions and making a complex process for travel relatively simple. Thank you, highly recommended!
My partner and I purchased testing kits to take with us on our recent holiday to Spain we ordered them online and they arrived the next day.
The instructions were easy to follow and we received our certificates via email straightaway when we did the test in Spain.
We also had excellent advice via the chat line before our holiday and all our questions were answered.
The day 2 test which we chose to do in the clinic (if you choose you can do this at home also ) was also very straightforward and carried out by a very pleasant young man!
An excellent service we would highly recommend Longridge Travel Health Clinic!.
Great friendly service. We picked up our fit-to-travel tests from the clinic and bought them to France. Sent across the videos and photos first thing this morning and it must have only been an hour or so before our fit to fly certificates were emailed back. We also have our Day 2 tests booked with the clinic. Very friendly and helpful. Will definitely use again if required. Highly recommend them.
Very efficient and knowledgeable staff on requirements for my destination country. Really good customer communication and care. Thank you!
This is the second occasion we have used the services of Longridge and both in times of changing rules. They refunded where appropriate without our asking. As a company, it really is the best and their representative, Lauren, is so polite, reliable and speedy.
Great service, quick & efficient, will use again.
Jamil has been great! Couldn’t recommend this service enough! Thank you so much!!
Fit to Fly Certificate PCR test results are obtained quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is a common misconception that you need to see your doctor to diagnose and get treatment for ear infections. In most cases, an ear infection does not require any further treatment than over-the-counter medication or in some cases antibiotics. Our pharmacists are qualified to check your ears if you are concerned about an ear infection, and can also prescribe medication to treat it.
If your infection is severe, we will be able to direct you to the appropriate healthcare professional to get your diagnosis and treatment plan without any delays.
Antibiotics can be incredibly useful in treating and preventing bacterial infections. Antibiotics work by either killing the bacteria directly or inhibiting their growth so they don’t reproduce and spread disease.
Antibiotics are usually prescribed when the infection is:
- Unlikely to clear up without antibiotics
- Could infect others
- Could take too long to clear without treatment
- Carry a risk of more serious complications
Antibiotics do not work for viral infections such as colds and flu.
