Smaller independent pharmacies often have the knowledge and connections with GP practices to build a highly localised approach to service delivery. We see independent pharmacies increasingly joining together to form local partnerships, including federations and ‘super practices’. Larger multiples can demonstrate competency in care to position themselves favourably with commissioners.
Advances in communications and IT have yet to fulfil their potential in healthcare. Already there’s been a move from passive patients to active individuals finding out about their conditions and managing their own well-being. And, in an increasingly digital world, the potential for connected health to further transform healthcare is enormous.
We’ve acted for a range of pharmacy businesses, from first time buyers to large independent groups, for many years. And our experience of primary and social care means that we are expertly primed to advise you on a range of collaborative ventures.
