Following the approval of the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, Uniphar has now completed the purchase of Hickey’s Pharmacy Group.

The acquisition of the Hickey’s Pharmacy Group aligns with Uniphar’s strategy to invest and build a best in class offering for community pharmacy. The acquisition adds 36 thriving community pharmacies to Uniphar’s network of owned, franchised and supported stores. The Hickey’s Pharmacy stores are primarily located in Dublin and Cork and their commuter belts, complementing Uniphar’s existing locations under the Life and Allcare brands.

In welcoming the Hickey’s team to the Uniphar Retail family, Dermot Ryan Managing Director, Uniphar Supply Chain & Retail commented ‘On behalf of the management team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all colleagues right across the business for their flexibility, resilience and commitment to looking after our customers and patients throughout the Covid-19 crisis. This is due in no small part to the talent and commitment of our teams. Challenging though the future is, I feel confident that all our retail pharmacy brands will go from strength to strength and continue to deliver to our customers with care and excellence’.
