Pharmacists and pharmacy owners face a unique set of challenges in today’s healthcare landscape, but also unique opportunities as vital providers of healthcare services and advice at the heart of our communities.
Whether you are applying for a new pharmacy contract, relocating an existing pharmacy or opposing a local pharmacy application that has been notified to you, our expert team of experienced pharmacy lawyers are here to support you and your business. We can guide you through the whole process from application form to NHS England decision to NHS Resolution appeal.
It is natural that any professional who is facing an investigation by their regulator will be worried about what might happen. If you find yourself subject to a fitness to practise investigation whether by NHS England or the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) we will stand side-by-side with you to seek the best possible outcome.
If you decide to sell your pharmacy business, or are looking to buy a pharmacy or group of pharmacies, our specialist pharmacy transactions team can guide you through the whole process. With a detailed understanding of pharmacy businesses, we know that buying or selling a pharmacy business is not like other corporate transaction and can help and protect you every step of the way.
