Sainsbury's to expand hospital pharmacy network
Sainsburys is to open four new outpatient hospital pharmacies each year as it looks to meet its target of doubling its pharmacy revenues over the next three years.
The news follows the opening of the supermarket’s latest outpatient pharmacy at King’s College Hospital in London earlier this month.
The supermarket opened its first outpatient pharmacy, at James Cook University Hospital, in February 2012 and this was followed by the outpatient pharmacies at Guy’s and St Thomas’ in December.
Mike Coupe, Sainsbury’s group commercial director, said: "As we grow our network of outpatient pharmacies the feedback we receive from patients and the NHS trusts we work with has been overwhelmingly positive. The experience we have gained from these, combined with that of running over 270 in-store pharmacies, gives us confidence that by expanding our network of outpatient pharmacies we will be able to offer a greater level of service to the NHS and wider community."
