At our clinic, we understand the importance of convenience and access to quality medical care – that’s why we provide a range of medications designed to meet your various needs.
Rabeprazole/ Esomeprazole/Lansoprazole – Ages 18+
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a medical condition that occurs when stomach acid flows back up into the oesophagus. It can cause discomfort and other unpleasant symptoms such as heartburn and regurgitation to occur. We can prescribe medication to assist in short term treatment of reflux symptoms. Common medications used for this include antacids which work by neutralising excess acids in your stomach
Naproxen 250mg – Ages 18 – 65
Lower back pain can be very uncomfortable and potentially debilitating. In most cases, it ranges in severity from mild to a moderate level; depending on posture and movement, the intensity of the discomfort may fluctuate. Fortunately, we are able to offer medication to aid in managing the pain.
Facial Hair Removal
Vaniqa 11.5% Cream – Ages 19+
Facial hair removal is an issue that can cause significant stress and anxiety for many people, particularly women. Facial hair removal medication has the potential to improve the psychological wellbeing of people who struggle with excessive hair growth e.g. due to PCOS, by reducing the amount of facial hair they have, comfortably, from the privacy of their own homes.
Cinchocaine & hydrocortisone containing suppositories and ointments
Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are common issues affecting many people around the world. They are swollen veins situated in or around the back passage that can cause a range of unpleasant symptoms such as intense itching, pain, bright red blood after passing faeces and problematic bowel movements. Haemorrhoids can be quite painful and uncomfortable to live with, but there are a variety of treatments available to help manage them.
Male Hair Loss
Finasteride Tablets – Ages 18+
Hair loss, more accurately known as male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia, can be a difficult thing to grapple with. Luckily, there is medication available to help to increase hair growth and prevent further hair loss in men with androgenic alopecia. Our pharmacists can prescribe medication without the need for a referral from your doctor.
Buscopan Tablets – Ages 6+
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that causes stomach pain or discomfort which can lead to additional symptoms such as bloating, gas, diarrhoea and constipation. Along with lifestyle changes like exercise and reducing stress levels, there are medications we can provide to aid in symptom relief. These medications help reduce stomach spasms from both the genito-urinary tract as well as from the gastrointestinal tract.
Metoclopramide Tablets – Ages 18 – 65
This medication is an effective treatment for nausea and vomiting when those symptoms have been induced by a migraine. Some migraine medications can also cause side effects of vomiting and nausea. Metoclopramide can reduce the severity of this symptom while still allowing the potentially beneficial effects of taking these types of medications.
Salamol/ Ventolin/ Airomir Inhalers – Ages 16+
We understand the importance of having a reliable inhaler at-the-ready for asthma sufferers. It can be devastating to have your inhaler lost, damaged, or simply empty – without being able to get in contact with your prescriber for another prescription. We can supply another inhaler for you If you have had a salbutamol inhaler prescribed in the last year.

Urinary incontinence is an uncomfortable symptom for adults who have overactive bladder syndrome, a condition where frequent and urgent need to urinate is experienced. The condition can present itself by a difficulty to completely empty the bladder, urinary urgency, lack of control over when the urge to urinate occurs, and voiding small amounts that continue despite one’s attempt to control them. Fortunately, there are treatments that we can provide which will help to reduce the distress associated with these symptoms.
Suffering From Hay fever?
Hay fever is a common condition that affects millions of people each year. Also known as allergic rhinitis, this condition results from an allergy to something like pollen, dust or mould which then irritates your nose, causing cold-like symptoms. These symptoms can range from sneezing and a runny or blocked nose all the way to intense itchiness and headaches. Fortunately, there are medications available to relieve these symptoms, enabling hay fever sufferers to enjoy the warmer months without misery.

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.
