The Superdrug Pharmacy in Mearns Cross is located in the Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns, and has served the local community seven days a week for over 20 years.
With the pharmacy having outgrown the size of its four walls, it was clear that investment was needed to ensure that the premises were fit-for-purpose. As a result, in late 2019 a major refit of the store was undertaken, including expanding the total store into two shop units. The result of this refit was a new, purpose-built pharmacy, consultation room and nurse clinic, enabling the team in Mearns Cross to continue to meet the needs of their patients.
The resulting dispensary has meant that all dispensing, including the 200 MDS, can now be commenced from the same location. The additional storage and checking space also make it easier for the pharmacists to safely pause their checking and deliver services when patients need them.
