The pharmacy, located in the airport’s terminal two, will not dispense prescriptions, but does offer patients the opportunity to purchase pharmacy-only (P) medicines that can only be sold under the guidance of a pharmacist, Well announced yesterday (August 26).
It is the second Well pharmacy to be located within a WHSmith store, with the other branch located at Gatwick airport.
Patients can also seek health advice from the pharmacy without the need for an appointment, in the privacy of a consultation room.
Seb Hobbs, chief executive of Well, said that although passenger numbers are “undoubtedly lower than usual”, the multiple is “delighted to provide a pharmacist service to the growing numbers passing through”.
“With no appointment needed, passengers can rely on the expert advice Well pharmacy teams provide every day along with well-known medicines to support their health and wellbeing needs,” he added.
Last year, Well opened its first pharmacy within a WHSmith store at Gatwick airport.
