In partnership with global retailer WHSmith, Well Pharmacy has opened a new outlet at Heathrow Terminal 2.

The airside pharmacy, located within a store of the global retailer, offers air travellers the luxury of buying from a range of pharmacy only medicines which can only be sold under the guidance of a qualified pharmacist.

The pharmacist can also offer passengers any last-minute advice and support they may need ahead of their journey, all in the privacy of a consultation room, Well said in a press released issued on Wednesday (Aug 26).

“I’m excited that our partnership with WHSmith has expanded into such a prestigious location,” said Well CEO Seb Hobbs, commenting on the opening of the pharmacy.

“While passenger numbers are undoubtedly lower than usual at the moment, we’re delighted to provide a pharmacist service to the growing numbers passing through… Recent years have seen an increasing rise in the trend for last minute holiday bookings, so knowing that you can get your holiday health essentials – and advice – at the airport means one less thing for passengers worry about.”

The third largest pharmacy chain in the UK, Well employs nearly 7,000 people, providing over 73.4 million prescriptions each year across its 750 pharmacies.

Carl Cowling, group chief executive of WHSmith, commented: “This new world-class design and stunning store environment, including the enhanced pharmacy offer, really does showcase the very best in travel retail globally.”
