All year round, our expert pharmacists and healthcare colleagues will be on hand to provide health and wellbeing advice, helping customers and patients to access key services, such as flu and travel vaccinations, at a time that is convenient to them. We’re thrilled to help families feel more in control of their health and provide additional care for local communities.”

The new store also offers customers exclusive beauty and bathing brands, including Soap&Glory, Sleek MakeUp and No7, the UK’s leading skincare brand, as well as a wide range of couture fragrances such as Viktor and Rolf and Dior.
