Online pharmacy Phlo secures new chief pharmacist

Glasgow-based online pharmacy Phlo Technologies has announced the appointment of Alistair Murray as its chief pharmacist.

Phlo offers patients same-day medicine delivery, with bases in Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Manchester and some 25% of England’s population in its “catchment area” for same-day deliveries.

The online pharmacy announced Mr Murray as its new chief pharmacist yesterday (July 31). Mr Murray, an independent prescriber and “digital pharmacy compliance expert”, was previously the founding clinician at Echo, which was subsequently bought by Lloydspharmacy in 2019 and rebranded to Lloydsdirect


“Impressive momentum”


Mr Murray said that he was “already hard at work” helping the company maintain its “impressive momentum” and grow further.

“As the Phlo chief pharmacist, I will be working closely with the team and our partner organisations to ensure the continued success of our regional expansion and new product development,” he added.

Adam Hunter, Phlo’s chief commercial officer, said that Mr Murray would contribute “a perfect mix of perspective and insight” to the company.

He continued: “His unique combination of clinical and regulatory experience and his track record in digital pharmacy make him the ideal person to take on the role of chief pharmacist.”

Phlo also operates Phlo Connect, a pharmacy application programming interface (API) that allows prescribers to send and monitor prescriptions, according to the company’s website.
