"Lloydspharmacy is a leading community pharmacy and healthcare provider with over 1,650 pharmacies across the UK, mainly in community and health centre locations. We employ around 17,000 staff and dispense over 150 million prescription items every year." [1] They are the UK's largest community pharmacy brand.

"During our long history, a number of esteemed names in our sector have been involved in creating the Lloydspharmacy we know today, and provided us with an enviable launch pad forthe future. Such names include Savory & Moore, Allens Chemist, Cross & Herbert, R Gordon Drummond, Kingswood GK and, of course, Lloyds Chemist and Hills Pharmacy.

"Our parent company, Celesio AG, purchased AAH plc (the UK’s leading pharmaceutical wholesaler) in 1995, going on to acquire Lloyds Chemists PLC, which at the time had 902 pharmacies, in 1997. Together with AAH’s 350-strong Hills Pharmacy network, this took the combined group to over 1,250 pharmacies; a number that has now grown to over 1,650 pharmacies within the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man."
