Sainsbury’s pharmacies were officially transferred to LloydsPharmacy on 1 September.
“The LloydsPharmacy brand is synonymous with delivering excellent services and providing expert care. We want Sainsbury’s customers to have the same local community pharmacy experience, in the convenient setting of their local supermarket. Our rebranding programme is an important step toward achieving this,” said marketing director at Celesio UK, Sarah Jezard.
The LloydsPharmacy range of products and service-led approach is being introduced to the supermarket pharmacies, said the company.
“Operating out of Sainsbury’s means we have additional ways in which customers can access the LloydsPharmacy brand and more opportunities to engage with communities to make healthcare more accessible, which is what we’re all about,” added Ms Jezard.
LloydsPharmacy, part of the Celesio group, has around 1,800 pharmacies across the UK, including the Sainsbury’s stores. The company employs over 19,000 staff and dispenses more than 150 million prescription items annually.
