Suffolk LPC chief executive Tania Farrow told C+D yesterday (February 7) that the two branches – at 62 High Street, Leiston, and in The Guineas Shopping Centre, Newmarket – closed at the end of January.
The pharmacies had "really dedicated and proactive teams who worked hard to support the needs of their customers", Ms Farrow said.
"I have real concerns about the sustainability of the community pharmacy network if some of the huge challenges that pharmacies are currently facing are not addressed quickly," she added.

C+D can also confirm that the Lloydspharmacy branch at 22E Carisbrooke Road in Newport, on the Isle of Wight (pictured above), closed last month.
The three pharmacies are part of the 190 “commercially unviable” Lloydspharmacy branches in England where parent company Celesio UK will cease trading. C+D has now confirmed the location of 32 of these pharmacies; the multiple would not confirm the remaining 158 branches.
Where else will Lloydspharmacy cease trading?

This map is live, and will be updated as C+D confirms the locations of further affected Lloydspharmacy branches.
