The Independent Pharmacy is an Online Pharmacy and Online Doctor service specialising in Men's, Women's, and Travel Health. We offer online consultations for specific prescription medicines, as well as selling all associated pharmacy medicines and goods at discounted prices. We want to revolutionise healthcare in the UK and aim to be the most customer-focussed, user-friendly Online Pharmacy & Online Doctor available. We want our customers to feel confident to contact us for advice and make purchases from us.
It became clear to both of us that traditional pharmacies don't really work for busy modern lifestyles – many customers don't have time to see a healthcare professional in person, which inevitably means compromising on their health and wellbeing.
So we decided to find a faster, more efficient way to access health information and advice and buy pharmacy products, often at a better price than you'll find on the high street.
The result was The Independent Pharmacy – a new professional venture that we're hugely proud of. We aim to be the most customer-focused online pharmacy in the UK, offering a full range of healthcare products and remedies for the UK's most common ailments.
We pride ourselves in bringing our professional knowledge and expertise directly to our customers through the Internet. This allows us to use both speed and discretion when fulfilling our customers needs, ensuring you get the care you need, when you need it.
The Independent Pharmacy is a UK-based online pharmacy owned and run by Andy Boysan and Scott McDougall.
Founder, Director & Superintendent Pharmacist BSc (Hons) University of Bath
I qualified as a Pharmacist in 1998, and since then I've managed UK community pharmacies of all sizes, from high street to health centres.
In more recent years I've trained pharmacy university graduates to become fully qualified and registered pharmacists, which is how I met Scott. I've sat on the local Drug advisory committee, and represented pharmacy in South Gloucestershire for over 3 years. My last post before starting The Independent Pharmacy was Area Manager, responsible for 25 community pharmacy branches with a total turnover of £25m.
Founder, Director & Pharmacist MPharm, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
I started working part time in a pharmacy at the age of 15, going on to gain a Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) at the University of Strathclyde.
For my post-university (pre registration) training year I worked at Lloyds Chemists, where I met Andy. After qualifying as a Pharmacist, I carried on working for Lloyds in Bristol, before deciding to start The Independent Pharmacy with Andy. I'm passionate about making healthcare as accessible as possible, especially striving to make it available and relevant in the digital age.
