Independent operator buys pharmacy co-located in GP surgery
Christie and Co has brokered a deal to sell a pharmacy co-located in a GP surgery in West Yorkshire to an “independent operator".
Medichem Ltd, described by Christie and Co as “a standard hour pharmacy,” is situated in Stuart Road Surgery in Pontefact and dispenses around 12,000 items per month according to the company.
It was sold to Sutton Manor Pharma, which owns four other sites including two in Hull and one in Sheffield, for an undisclosed price.
“We are pleased to have completed the sale to Sutton Manor Pharma who we are confident will continue the strong service provision that the pharmacy is known for. They inherit a fantastic pharmacy team, and we wish them and the new owners the greatest of success,” said Rajeev Dhand, the former owner of Medichem who decided to retire after 10 years running the business.
Sutton Manor Pharma Services director Manish Khanna said: “We are delighted to have taken over the pharmacy and hope to build on the excellent service that Raj and the team at Medichem have provided to the local community over the years. We plan to further enhance the provision of pharmacy services at the Stuart Road site and beyond in Pontefract.”
