On Thursday September 24 the team at LloydsPharmacy in Arundel, helped by local GP practice manager Mrs Julie Hannaford, officially opened the doors to its modern approach to community health.

The store has been transformed as part of a large-scale roll-out across the UK and follows the recent launch of LloydsPharmacy’s wider initiative to deliver forward-thinking and flexible healthcare.

Arundel residents can now benefit from enhanced services for a range of conditions at the revamped store, with a particular emphasis on skin health and pain management.

Lisa Sturman, pharmacy manager, comments: “We’re excited by our transformation; we want our new store to become the destination of choice for customers looking for expert health advice.

“Our knowledgeable four-strong team will be on hand to provide customers with individual expertise on skin health, helping those with skin conditions to effectively manage their condition with product selection support and application techniques.”

The enhanced services are already proving popular in other locations. A recent survey conducted by LloydsPharmacy showed that customers believe LloydsPharmacy to be experts when it comes to giving advice on skin care (72%) and a massive 92 percent feel LloydsPharmacy to be experts in giving advice on pain relief.

Pain management is an area where the Arundel pharmacy team will now offer enhanced support. Results from LloydsPharmacy’s pain control service show that 46 percent of customers have experienced improved pain after just four weeks of taking pharmacist’s advice.

“We know many who suffer from long-term health conditions don’t always want to go to their doctor every time they have a question,” Lisa continued. “We’re able to support the work of GPs and other healthcare professionals in the area by offering convenient, one-to-one care that our local residents need and deserve.”

Complementing the forward-thinking approach to health, the store has undergone a modern make-over, providing customers with a bright and airy, relaxed environment in which to seek help and advice at ease.

The community pharmacy located on Green Lane Close is the latest of more than 350 stores to complete the transformation. Visit www.lloydspharmacy.com for more information.
