LloydsPharmacy has confirmed that its ‘any remaining’ stores in Sainsbury’s will permanently be closed from Tuesday (13 June.)

The pharmacy chain had announced in January that all its Sainsbury’s stores will be closed before the end of 2023, within six months of announcement it has implemented the closure of all its stores in Sainsbury. 

A spokesperson from LloydsPharmacy told Pharmacy Business: “In January 2023 LloydsPharmacy announced the withdrawal of pharmacy services from all Sainsbury’s stores, to take place throughout 2023. It can now confirm that any remaining branches within the Sainsbury’s estate will close by 13th June 2023.”

Throughout the process, LloydsPharmacy has been committed to helping patients easily find a suitable alternative provision.  It has kept patients informed of when services from their specific pharmacy will end so that they can transfer their nominations as needed.”

Dr Leyla Hannback, CEO, Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies (AIMp) tweeted: “Sad to see the end of an era for Sainsbury’s Lloyds pharmacies as all their 237 branches close permanently tomorrow. Pharmacies provide accessibility to care for the public & years of underfunding has led to many shutting their doors for good.”
