Details

The UK pharmacy market continued its recovery in 2015, increasing its estimated value by 4.6%, the fastest rate of growth in over 10 years. This has been driven by NHS receipts revenue, which grew 4.9%, outperforming the smaller OTC component of the total pharmacy market. Higher inflation contributed to growth, as prescription costs rose by 0.15p to Pound8.20 in England, while the OTC market has been lifted by improvements in consumer confidence, with people more willing to spend on self-care, health and wellbeing.

Key Findings
- The number of prescriptions handled per pharmacy has continued to rise, albeit at a slower rate than in the past, putting pharmacies under pressure to increase efficiency and potentially undermining their attempts to develop services alongside their traditional role in dispensing.

- The NHS in England is promoting greater use of hub and spoke dispensing (automated centralized assembly of prescriptions at the "hub" prior to dispensing to patients in the pharmacy or "spoke") as a means of driving efficiency within the community pharmacy system. It will free up staff time within the pharmacy as well as reducing the possibility of dispensing inaccuracies and in-store stock holdings.

- Smaller specialists including independent operators are currently an important segment of the market but they are set to suffer as pressures increase on funding and larger operators make use of their economies of scale. Current proposals for government funding reductions could lead to significant numbers of these operators closing or being forced to sell up, furthering consolidation and the trend towards growth of larger specialist national chains.
