The Pharmacy, 240 Chichester Road, North End, Portsmouth PO2 0AU
Acting on behalf of David Appleby, Christie + Co was asked to confidentially market his independent neighbourhood pharmacy located in Portsmouth. The pharmacy had a script volume of approximately 4,000 per month with a proven new system for the distribution of MEDS to local care homes.
Following a period of rapid growth in prescription numbers generated by the client’s new system, we were instructed to negotiate a sale of the pharmacy business or the introduction of a new partner to enable expansion. An existing pharmacy operator based in Farnham was sourced and a new partnership was created.
