A new partnership agreement sees wholesaler Bestway Medhub become an official supplier partner for the Cambrian Alliance Group, one of the UK’s largest pharmacy buying groups. The new partners say the agreement could deliver significant savings for hundreds of independent pharmacies. 

The Bestway Medhub team

Bestway Medhub will act as a supplier partner for generics, parallel imports, OTC pharmacy products and dressings. Cambrian Alliance Group, which was set up in 2000 and now has 1,200 members, puts over 6,000 items out to tender each month.

Faysal Uddin, director of sales and operations at Bestway Medhub, said: “We are thrilled to be chosen as a new supplier for the Cambrian Alliance Group, not only because they’re one of the leading buying groups in the UK, but because we have a shared vision – to ensure independent pharmacies survive and prosper.

“We’ve already opened over 20 new accounts just at the Cambrian Alliance Convention, and our partnership opens up our service to around 1,200 new pharmacies that may not have previously had easy access. Our relationship has clear benefits for our customers, ensuring they get the best price for every product, and an excellent customer service experience from beginning to end.”

Cambrian Alliance Group chief executive Paul Davies said: “We are delighted to work in partnership with Bestway Medhub, providing our members with even greater access to better product prices. Our driving goal is to help all members grow their businesses and increase their profits, and this new partnership strengthens our commitment to achieving this ambition.”
