Monckton Properties welcomes The Prescription Service to Tatton Street, Knutsford
Following the success of their prescription collection and delivery service, husband and wife team Lee and Caroline Williams are set to expand The Prescription Service with an extended hours pharmacy and brand new healthcare shop in a larger premises at 11 Tatton Street, Knutsford.
The shop space, leased by Monckton Properties Ltd – part of the Tatton Estate, has undergone a complete refit and opened to customers on 12 November 2012.
Lee and Caroline have been practicing pharmacists since 2005 and set up a prescription delivery service in February 2011. Caroline said: “We started out delivering prescriptions to support local GP surgeries, taking medicine to patients that struggled to get into town. However, it became apparent that there wasn’t a local out of hours service and this is where we had the idea to open the shop.”
The Prescription Service shop will be open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Saturday and 9am to 7pm on a Sunday. The business will also continue with the delivery of prescriptions to support GPs in and around Knutsford covering a radius that stretches as far as Alderley Edge. It has a team of three drivers with one reserve driver – Caroline’s dad!
Caroline continued: “For people with full time jobs, it can be difficult to get to a pharmacy during traditional opening hours. We wanted to give Knutsford something that it was missing. The extended hours will also support GPs, giving them access to medication over 100 hours a week.”
Lee added: “The new shop is much more than a dispensary, we have a total focus on health and wellbeing and will have a private consultancy room where we can also offer advice on the best treatment for ailments.
“We would like to sincerely thank our loyal customers who have supported us over the last two years as without them, this expansion would not have been possible.”
Welcoming the new tenants, Henry Brooks of Tatton Estate Management said: “Monckton Properties are very pleased to welcome Lee and Caroline to Tatton Street and hope that they have many successful years there with The Prescription Service. We are delighted to help a local, family-run business grow and providing such fantastic personal service for the community. Delivery and extended hours especially are a real boost and we think they will be an even greater asset to the town.”
