The UK’s first LloydsPharmacy franchise store officially opened in Gloucester.

Pharmacist and entrepreneur Andrew Lane has partnered with LloydsPharmacy’s parent company, Celesio, to offer his patients and customers a service-led offering under the nationally known brand. ‘I am very pleased to be joining LloydsPharmacy,’ said Mr Lane.

‘I truly believe through the franchise initiative we will be able to deliver more benefits and health services to the local community we currently serve, supporting patients’ health and wellbeing needs by combining our experience and local knowledge with the services and expertise from LloydsPharmacy.’

Nigel Swift, marketing and sales director at Celesio UK, said the launch of the first franchise store was an ‘exciting time’.
