Gosport residents can now benefit from enhanced services for a range of conditions at a revamped pharmacy in the town.

LloydsPharmacy in Privett Road, has been transformed to offer better services to its customers with a particular emphasis on skin health and pain management.

Long-standing customers Frank and Pamela Skinner officially opened the doors to the refurbished store, which has undergone a modern makeover, with a bright, airy, and relaxed environment where customers seek help and advice at ease.

It has been transformed as part of a large-scale roll-out across the UK and follows the recent launch of LloydsPharmacy’s wider initiative to deliver forward-thinking and flexible healthcare.

Lisa Woods, pharmacy manager, said: ‘We’re excited by our transformation; we want our new store to become the destination of choice for customers looking for expert health advice.

‘Our knowledgeable 10-strong team will be on hand to provide customers with individual expertise on skin health, helping those with skin conditions to effectively manage their condition with product selection support and application techniques.’

Pain management is an area where the Gosport pharmacy team will now offer enhanced support.

Results from LloydsPharmacy’s pain control service show that 46 per cent of customers have experienced improved pain relief after just four weeks of taking a pharmacist’s advice.

The enhanced services are already proving popular with customers in other locations.

A recent survey conducted by LloydsPharmacy showed that customers believe LloydsPharmacy to be experts when it comes to giving advice on skin care (72 percent) and a massive 92 percent feel LloydsPharmacy to be experts in giving advice on pain relief.
