Edinpharm is a pharmaceutical, non-profit, buying group , based in Edinburgh. We support independent pharmacies across Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.
The company was founded in 1996 by a dedicated group of independent community pharmacists. We pride ourselves in bringing the benefits of being part of a ‘virtual multiple’, to our members, whilst still allowing them to retain their own independence and decision making.
Our goal is to protect and promote the growth of independent pharmacies by leveraging collective buying power, promoting beneficial relationships with people who matter to independent pharmacy, and maximising the return on investment to members of the group.
These are Edinpharm’s principle suppliers. However, we have relationships with many more pharmaceutical suppliers to cover all of our members’ requirements.
“Over and above the competitive pricing, one of the greatest benefits I’ve experienced since joining Edinpharm is access to the pool of knowledge and experience of other members – There’s a real sense of community – independent contractors willing to help and share advice.”
The time I save worrying and checking prices, I can put to much better use, especially with the provision of the new extended services.
It soon became apparent to us that being Edinpharm members meant consistently better prices without any of the hassle. As a consequence, our profits have risen and we have more time to spend on our business.
