The Co-operative Pharmacy in Gosport has been rebranded following change of ownership.

The store in Bury Road, Gosport, will adopt the new Well signage as part of a nationwide £200 million investment by the company.

To celebrate the revamp the company is asking Gosport residents to nominate their unsung heroes of the community, to be VIP guests at the store’s grand opening.

As a provider of primary healthcare, Well pharmacies aim to save customers a trip to their GP, local hospital A&E or help them make healthy lifestyle changes.

More than 780 pharmacies in the UK will change from The Co-operative Pharmacy and become Well, following Bestway Group’s £620 million acquisition of the high street pharmacy.

Regional manager for Well in Gosport, Nikesh Patel, said: ‘We are extremely excited to unveil the new-look pharmacy to the residents of Gosport.

‘Our colleagues are also looking forward to providing personalised health and wellbeing services as they continue to serve the community.’

In its search for local heroes, the pharmacy hopes to solidify its role as part of the fabric of the community.

Mr Patel said they want people to nominate residents who have done something exceptional, which has had an impact on the people of Gosport.

This could include anything from saving someone’s life to a contribution to charity or voluntary work that has had a positive impact in the area.

‘We recognise that many of our customers are tireless in their efforts to support our community,’ he said.

He added that this was ‘why we want to celebrate their work.’

The store hopes that by inviting unsung heroes to the grand opening, it will help them get to know their community and find out what their customers want.
