Edinpharm AGM 2020
Despite the unprecedented events surrounding the pandemic, Edinpharm is pleased to announce it has gone from strength to strength since 2019.
Since introducing a new model in July 2019, Edinpharm has successfully grown it’s membership base to over 200 members and counting and continues to provide exceptionally competitive pricing to each member.
We recently held our AGM, which was a bit different this year. With current travel and socialising restrictions we opted to hold the meeting via a video conference. This had the benefit of removing the need to travel to the central belt of Scotland and many members from further afield were able to attend.
These are Edinpharm’s principle suppliers. However, we have relationships with many more pharmaceutical suppliers to cover all of our members’ requirements.
As a new pharmacy owner, joining Edinpharm is easily the most important business decision I have made so far. Very competitive pricing has helped boost profits. Membership benefits also include access to SOPs, Locums, special offers and much more. The greatest advantage is the staff – advice is always provided swiftly, any queries are dealt with efficiently and the overall support on offer is immensely reassuring – another reason to feel confident about putting your trust in Edinpharm!
Being a member of Edinpharm gives me the peace of mind that I will receive the products that I need, at a competitive price. It simplifies the ordering process, allowing me to maintain consistency across my branches and removing the worry of bad ordering habits, allowing me to focus my time on other areas of my business. It’s more than just pricing though, there’s also professional and commercial advice and support via both the Edinpharm team and a network of like minded, independent pharmacists.
“Over and above the competitive pricing, one of the greatest benefits I’ve experienced since joining Edinpharm is access to the pool of knowledge and experience of other members – There’s a real sense of community – independent contractors willing to help and share advice.”
As long-term members of Edinpharm, we know and appreciate the value of belonging to this group. Membership brings access to a large and growing community of independent pharmacies facing the same challenges and sharing ideas and good practice with each other. The members’ portal gives access to an excellent range of services and benefits that today’s pharmacies require, and the extension into support for HR and other management tools is a really helpful development.
