Rowlands Pharmacy has announced that it has acquired 30 LloydsPharmacy branches in Scotland.

The community pharmacy group owned by the wider Numark network now has over 70 directly owned branches in Scotland.

Nigel Swift, managing director of Rowlands Pharmacy, said: “This is a significant investment in growing our network north of the border and further reinforces our presence in Scotland delivering outstanding patient care services, advice and support. We welcome our new colleagues into the Numark family.”

For many years, the Scottish government has supported community pharmacy at the forefront of providing NHS care which people want, need and value with a commitment that has delivered for patients and the NHS, he said.

“We are investing in Scotland in the expectation that support from the Scottish government will continue in the years ahead to recognise the critical role of community pharmacy at the beating heart of healthcare provision from illness prevention through to long-term condition management,” Swift added.
