The local community is being encouraged to support the bid by engaging in a public consultation, launched in partnership with NHS Lothian today.

The proposed new pharmacy – to be located on Waterfront Broadway – would meet the needs of the estimated 10,000 new residents of the regeneration area, which lies two miles north of Edinburgh City Centre. To gauge support for the application, a 90-day public consultation process has been launched jointly with NHS Lothian.

Established in 1826, Lindsay and Gilmour have been serving communities across the East and Central belt for longer than any other independent pharmacy group in Scotland.  We’re therefore delighted to be engaging in the regeneration programme at Granton Waterfront. The development is one of the most significant projects of it’s kind in Europe. New homes will be built, as well as significant amounts of new business, retail and leisure facilities. We propose to support the growing population through high-quality healthcare services. We’re very proud to have a well-earned and trusted reputation for providing the very best pharmacy care in the communities we serve. We are therefore keen that as many people engage with the consultation, so we can move forward and increase the pharmacy offering to this growing population.

Take part in the consultation process today! Here’s how…
