We are delighted to announce that the Lindsay & Gilmour Pharmacy family is growing. On the 1st of February, we welcomed Balerno Pharmacy. This vital and popular health resource, located on Balerno High Street, has served the busy West Edinburgh community under the ownership of the now-retired Christine Lawrie since 2001.
The pharmacy team in Balerno will operate alongside Lindsay & Gilmour pharmacies in the neighbouring villages of Currie and Juniper Green and with the support of the existing staff team, we look forward to getting to know the community.
“My colleagues and I at Lindsay & Gilmour are absolutely delighted to welcome this fantastic pharmacy which sits in the heart of the Balerno village. We are very much looking forward to getting to know the pharmacy team who have a very special place in the lives of the surrounding community and, of course, to serving the health and medicine needs of our patients and customers. Lindsay & Gilmour is very much a family business and we are so pleased to have the opportunity to expand our family’s reach in the West of Edinburgh.”Lindsay & Gilmour Managing Director and Superintendent Pharmacist Philip Galt
The acquisition comes as Lindsay & Gilmour pharmacy teams across Scotland continue to provide our valued patients and customers with the highest possible standard of healthcare.
We welcomed the launch of the NHS Scotland Pharmacy First service at all of our pharmacies as it allows our expert team to do more to help the patients and communities we care for.
Our doors remain open for on the spot health and well-being support while continuing to operate in a COVID secure way.
