PharmaDoctor and Star partner to develop pharmacy services

PharmaDoctor and Star

Patient group direction (PGD) provider PharmaDoctor and service provider Star are working together to develop clinical services for community pharmacies.

London-based PharmaDoctor claims to be the “leading provider of clinically supported PGDs in the UK”, having helped pharmacies offer services for malaria, meningitis and erectile dysfunction.

Star, meanwhile, offers a “unique approach to data, insights, analytics and unrivalled industry knowledge and experience”.

The “strategic partnership” of the two companies – announced on Monday (September 24) – will enable them “to leverage each other’s experience and strengths to provide joined-up solutions”.

Together they aim to offer pharmacy services “across multiple therapeutic areas” that will generate “an attractive return on investment”.

PharmaDoctor CEO Graham Thoms said: “Increasingly, the most successful pharmacies are diversifying their business from simply being a dispenser of medicine to offering an extensive set of clinical services.”

The partnership will “offer patients a large choice of convenient and accessible clinical services without the need to wait for a doctor’s appointment”, he added.

Star head of business development Ryan Wooller said his business “recognises the huge opportunity to collaborate and invest in pharmacy in a more meaningful way to produce measurable patient outcomes”.
