Locum Pharmacist acquires 30-hour Moorside Pharmacy

A community pharmacy in Consett, County Durham, North East England, has been sold to a locum pharmacist after the previous owner decided to put it on
the market following 29 years of ownership.

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, recently announced the sale of Moorside Pharmacy, a 30-hour community pharmacy that dispenses an average
of 3,200 NHS items per month.

Located 1.5 miles west of Consett, the pharmacy shares a building with a small GP surgery in Moorside.

Rachel Hurst, who has owned it since 1995, brought it to the market to downsize her operations and focus on her busier pharmacies – one in Consett and two in
Crook, County Durham, according to the broker.

Following a confidential sales process, locum pharmacist Monju Miah has acquired the pharmacy. He plans to manage it hands-on and introduce additional services
that will benefit the local population, the broker stated.
