Market view – 2016 set to be another busy year

Pharmacy Market Update

Demand for pharmacies in 2015 was at an all time high with over 4,000 applicants looking for pharmacy opportunities across the UK. Fuelling this appetite were buyers of all types, from first-time buyers (as newly qualified and locum pharmacists sought to mitigate the effects of diminishing locum rates and inconsistency of income), to existing independent pharmacy owners and multiple operators, seeking to expand their businesses.

The demand we experienced has been for all pharmacy types from LPS pharmacies through to high dispensing volume health centre pharmacies. 

As a result where pharmacies are placed on to the market, significant interest is more often than not generated, leading to competitive bidding. As a result average pharmacy prices increased by 10.8% according to analysis of transactions we completed over the year.

Purchaser appetite is experienced across all price ranges and areas with 'hot spots' in London and other major conurbations across the UK. 

In December 2015 the Department of Health announced its intention to cut pharmacy funding by some £170 million to take effect from October 2016.

For 2015/16, the funding commitment to pharmacies in England is £2.8 billion under the community pharmacy contractual framework (essential and advanced services). In 2016/17 this funding will be no higher than £2.63 billion.

Whilst the full details are yet to be finalised the announcement has done little to dampen purchaser confidence. With a number of ‘live’ projects currently being marketed, interest already generated, indicates that market confidence will continue well into 2016.
