Phill Galt replaces Adam Dennett who stepped down from the Cegedim Rx’s leadership role after a successful ten-year tenure 

Former superintendent pharmacist and National Pharmacy Association (NPA) director, Phil Galt, has been appointed the new UK managing director for pharmacy software supplier Cegedim Rx.

The position was previously held by Adam Dennett, who resigned after a successful ten-year tenure to pursue a new career outside healthcare, the company said.

Cegedim Rx, the pharmacy entity of Cegedim Healthcare Solutions UK, announced the new appointment this month (April 5).

Tristan de Foucher, head of European operations for Cegedim Group, said: “Adam has been a force of nature in this business for the past 10 years. Under his leadership, the team has continuously and successfully invested in and driven product innovation to stay ahead of the ever-changing demands placed upon community pharmacy.”

Galt has over 20 years of experience as a qualified pharmacist and a successful business leader. He has worked extensively in community pharmacy, focusing on both care delivery and technology implementation.

More recently, Galt simultaneously served as the managing director and superintendent pharmacist for Lindsay & Gilmour Pharmacy, an independent chain comprising 32 locations.

Previously, he held positions as a non-executive director on the board of the National Pharmacy Association Insurance Company (NPAI) and as a director of the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies (AIMp).

Galt also served as a trustee for the NPA Health Education Foundation, a charity set up to advance public education in the prevention and proper treatment of disease by encouraging greater research within community pharmacy.

Commenting on his appointment, Phil said: “I know the pressures of delivering frontline care in community pharmacy and just how challenging it can be to juggle this alongside managing a sustainable and profitable business.

“I’m therefore truly looking forward to bringing Cegedim Rx my 20 years of customer experience and industry expertise in order to accelerate the company’s product innovation and revenue growth.”

Foucher expressed his delight in having someone of Galt’s caliber and industry experience join the company

“Phil Galt is an industry visionary with a proven track record of execution.

“It is an exciting moment in the life of Cegedim Rx and we welcome his leadership to federate the team behind his expertise, enable enhanced support to pharmacists and deliver better patient outcomes,”  he said.

Cegedim Rx offers a comprehensive suite of pharmacy software solutions, including PMR system Pharmacy Manager, Pharmacy Services and Pharmacy Intelligence Hub.
