MP Works to Secure Great Malvern Pharmacy Solution

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has pledged to support efforts which are attempting to find a replacement pharmacy for the centre of Great Malvern.

Boots closed its store and pharmacy earlier this year and Peak Pharmacy has confirmed that is it planning to close its outlet on Church Street early next year.

Harriett visited the pharmacy to talk to staff and has written to Peak Pharmacy to find out the reason for the closure.

Great Malvern centre will now be left without a chemists although alternative stores are available at Link Top, Malvern Link and in Barnards Green as well as a Boots in the town’s retail park.

The MP has offered her support to efforts to find a new pharmacy operator to move onto the site.

Harriett said:

“This is worrying news for people who rely on a chemists shop in the centre of Great Malvern and I’m disappointed that this is the second pharmacy to exit Church Street in a year.

“Peak Pharmacy have written to me to confirm the news, and explain their decision, and I have reached out to the body responsible for managing Worcestershire’s pharmacy provision to see what we can do to find a replacement plan.

“I have formally asked for a review on whether there is adequate coverage for the town and I will keep a close eye on this matter as we move towards a full closure of the pharmacy next year.”
