No Doctor? No problem! At Everest Pharmacy we pride ourselves in providing expert health care to our patients. Therefore whether you are looking to get a general health check or you are wanting to use our Consult and Treat Service, Everest Medic is here for you.
Our pharmacist has a wealth of community experience and is a qualified Independent Prescriber; this means that he is able to treat a range of acute medical conditions without the need to see your GP.
We are a modern prescribing clinic that offers both NHS and private treatments covering many minor conditions.

This list gives an example of what we treat:
- Athletes foot

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 use Everest Medic 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.
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.
We are able to offer the Everest Medic in Manchester as a private walk in clinic providing consultations, diagnosis and treatment. Each consultation is £19.99. Contact us for further information or visit us to save yourself a trip to your GP today!
