The Tasmanian TerryWhite Chemmart network is getting a significant boost
The banner group has welcomed the addition of nine new pharmacies in the island state over the coming months.
Of the nine new pharmacies, TWC welcomes a collective group of seven pharmacies—Windsor Park, Riverside, Mowbray, Launceston City, Launceston Health Hub, Exeter and Newstead—run by 16 dedicated health professionals who have been working together since the early nineties, with a customer-focused approach and a passion for delivering exceptional health services.
The first of their pharmacies in Exeter will open in early December with the remainder to open early in the new year.
With a strong sense of community and great working relationships with their local GPs, the group are looking forward to building their community-centred pharmacies further with TerryWhite Chemmart through the business support, IT platforms and events like Masterclass.
Sam Pankhurst, new TWC Network Partner for Newstead, said on behalf of the group, “In this ever-changing community pharmacy landscape, we are looking forward to the transition and are excited to explore all the new opportunities TerryWhite Chemmart will offer”.
The group has several industry representatives amongst them including Scott Chambers, Melissa Johnson, Brad Turner and Helen O’Byrne (Guild National Council) who now make up part of the Guild Tasmania Branch Committee along with Tasmanian Guild Branch President and new TWC Network Partner, John Dowling.
Mr Dowling is also currently transitioning his Coventry’s Pharmacy, located in Latrobe, into the TerryWhite Chemmart network.
TWC CEO Duncan Phillips said he is looking forward to seeing the new businesses flourish under the TerryWhite Chemmart banner.
“The decision to join TWC was not made lightly and we are honoured to welcome the professionalism and health leadership that comes from a team of this calibre,” Mr Phillips said.
“TWC will be stronger with them and we will make them stronger with us.”
In addition to the group of seven pharmacies, TerryWhite Chemmart also welcomes John Dowling’s Coventry’s pharmacy in Latrobe, set to open in November, and Stephen Case’s pharmacy in Legana, due to open early in the New Year.
