UNITED Co-op Healthcare has burst through the ten million mark for the first time.
That&#039s the number of prescriptions dispensed by the 127-strong group of community pharmacies, even before it had reached the end of its financial year.
The ten millionth prescription was dispensed at the United Co-op Healthcare pharmacy in Windsor Road, Garstang, Lancashire, where pharmacist Andrew Burdett is pictured celebrating with colleague Fiona Lawrenson (supervisor).
Steve Coleman, Operations Manager for United Co-op Healthcare, commented: `This excellent performance by all our pharmacies is a clear indication of the Group&#039s growing success, but also demonstrates the key role of community pharmacies, offering individual attention to patients, in rural areas such as Garstang, as well as in towns and suburbs."
