Chairman of the Liberal Party, Sir Henry Boyle opened a pharmacy in Chingford today, following an extensive refurbishment.

The team at Lloyds Pharmacy in Station Road were joined by long-standing customer Sir Boyle today who cut the ribbon to re-open the store.

Following the revamp, the shop will offer a wider range of services, with a particular emphasis on skin health and pain management.

Anna Kawka, pharmacy manager, said: “We’re excited by our transformation; we want our new store to become the destination of choice for customers looking for expert health advice.

“Our knowledgeable eight-strong team will be on hand to provide customers with individual expertise on skin health, helping those with skin conditions to effectively manage their condition with product selection support and application techniques.”

Pain management is an area where the Chingford pharmacy team will now offer enhanced support. Results from LloydsPharmacy’s pain control service show that 46 percent of customers have experienced improved pain after just four weeks of taking pharmacist’s advice.

“We know many who suffer from long-term health conditions don’t always want to go to their doctor every time they have a question,” Anna continued.

“We’re able to support the work of GPs and other healthcare professionals in the area by offering convenient, one-to-one care that our local residents need and deserve.”

The community pharmacy is the latest of more than 350 stores to complete the transformation.

LloydsPharmacy in Chingford is open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 5.30pm on Saturday.
