Why invest in a pharmacy?

Pharmacies play a pivotal role in the healthcare ecosystem, serving as crucial hubs for dispensing medications, providing health advice, and contributing to community well-being. Owners of a pharmacy premises benefit from becoming a part of this essential industry, with the potential for stable returns and a positive societal impact.

As a commercial property, a pharmacy presents a good financial opportunity primarily due to the consistent and growing demand for healthcare and pharmaceutical products. By offering a separate partitioned consultation room in addition to a sales counter and ancillary storage, a pharmacy can also offer specialist services like health screenings and vaccinations.

What to consider before investing in a pharmacy

Of course, choosing the right location is one of the most important steps. Areas with growing populations are always a popular choice, but smaller, more rural areas can also give your pharmacy the advantage of a captive market. 

Compliance is crucial, too. There are strict regulatory requirements that govern pharmacies in the UK, and ensuring compliance with licensing, safety and healthcare regulations is absolutely essential. 

Other considerations include:

  • Market trends and demographics: Analyse market trends and demographics to understand the specific needs of the community. Tailoring pharmacy services to the local population can enhance the property's value (and this is something our property experts can advise on)
  • Property particulars: Pay attention to anything which might constitute property particulars, since these are crucial for assessing whether a pharmacy is the right investment. These might include the size, layout, and condition.
  • Guide price: The guide price is important when investing in a pharmacy as it offers an initial estimate of the property’s value, helping investors gauge the financial viability of the investment.
  • Business rates: These are crucial when investing in a pharmacy as they represent a significant ongoing expense. Business rates, based on the property’s valuation, impact the overall cost of operating the pharmacy. 
  • Existing tenancy: Existing tenant occupation is important when investing in a pharmacy, particularly if you’re closing a sale subject to this tenancy. This means the investment comes with a pre-existing income stream, reducing initial risk and uncertainty.
  • Technological integration: How up-to-date is your chosen pharmacy? Will it require a refurbishment, or does it have all of the necessary tech to provide patients with the level of service they expect?
