The Independent Pharmacy - Online Pharmacy, Online Chemist & Online Doctor
The Independent Pharmacy is an Online Pharmacy & Online Doctor based in Bristol, UK. The Independent Pharmacy is owned by two pharmacists, Andy Boysan and Scott McDougall, who left their jobs in local chemists with the belief that it is time that the Internet was used to expand the availability of affordable healthcare.
The Independent Pharmacy offers a large selection of medicines alongside trusted healthcare advice gained from years of pharmacy experience. As specialists in Men’s, Women’s, Sexual and Travel Health they even provide free online consultations via the Online Doctor with a team of GPs & Pharmacist Prescribers for a broad range of ailments, offering convenience, discretion and value alongside excellent customer service.
The Independent Pharmacy also offers an easy-to-use online travel clinic with an interactive map and shopping list to allow customers to quickly find out the information and products required for a trip to any country, from a family break to a round-the-world trip.
“We pride ourselves on offering our customers economical products and a discreet and convenient service. We felt too often healthcare was difficult to access or not available at the times to suit the patient, hence The Independent Pharmacy was born” says Andy.
On the ambitions of the company, Scott said “At The Independent Pharmacy our main goal is to make our customer’s access to healthcare as quick, easy and informative as possible. We aim to save our customers time and money, allowing them to get the treatments and products they need to get on with their busy lives.”

What is an Online Pharmacy/Online Chemist?
An online pharmacy is very similar to your local chemist in the way it is operated and regulated. The main difference is that, as an Online Pharmacy/Chemist, we are tailored to providing medication over the Internet, and have developed safe methods to do this. Like a regular chemist we dispense NHS prescriptions, however our real focus is how we can provide and increase access to healthcare remotely via the Internet. We provide a range of over-the-counter treatments and expert advice on self-care in the online pharmacy, with fast and discreet access to consultations for prescription treatments with our Online Doctor.
How is an Online Pharmacy/Chemist different to my local chemist?
We aren't that different really! Actually a lot of online pharmacies are run from high street chemists. At The Independent Pharmacy, we wanted to focus on expanding the provision of online healthcare so we operate a purely online service. This allows us to focus our attention on our online customers, offering them the best service & prices we possibly can.
