Working with the NHS

As a community pharmacy, we are a key partner to the NHS. We work closely to agree new ways for pharmacists to provide community healthcare, and design new services which meet the specific needs of the communities in which we work.

Many of our pharmacy teams work with primary care organisations, meeting local healthcare needs, and with our national voice we are helping to shape Government thinking about our nation's health.

Expanding the role of pharmacy

We are committed to extending the role of pharmacy professionals as a primary health provider, in line with Government priorities. Our team of pharmacists and pharmacy support colleagues are passionate about providing expert advice and healthcare services and we pride ourselves in having great teams to deliver all our customers' healthcare needs. These professionals are at the very heart of our business. Examples of these pharmacy services are our Travel Vaccination Service, Winter Flu Vaccination Service, Smokeless Service and Diabetes Risk Assessment Service.
