The opening of Somerset Gardens Pharmacy was a milestone for the business and a huge achievement for the team in challenging economic times.
Managing Director and founder Andrew Murray commented "Today marks a great day for the business having opened our 20th pharmacy and this is something to be celebrated for everyone involved. The teams in all of our pharmacies and the support team in head office can be proud to be part of the fastest growing pharmacy business in the UK and I can't thank everyone enough for their passion and commitment that has helped us reach this milestone."
Community Pharmacies was founded in 2009 with 1 pharmacy opening in September of the same year. Following 2 years of work developing the business model and raising finance to support the business plan the business has grown rapidly adding 19 new pharmacies from October 2011 to today.
Murray continued "Now that we have reached 20 pharmacies our focus is very much on ensuring that we develop and deliver exceptional customer service levels in all of our pharmacies becoming the pharmacy of choice to all of the local communities where we operate. We have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline that will transform the way that patients receive their pharmacy services that will ensure that we are market leading in service delivery and patient care all of which are deliverable because of our unique joint venture model with our GP Practice Partners"
Further growth is expected in the business with more pharmacy openings planned and new innovative services being launched over the coming months ahead.
