Pharmacierge, an e-Prescription MedTech for private clinicians, has announced a substantial 5,500 sqft expansion in Wimpole Street, London.
It will create central London’s largest robotically-enabled dispensary, situated in the heart of the Harley Street area.
Pharmacierge is backed by 80 private GPs and consultants spanning all medical specialties and claims to be the pharmacy partner of choice to all leading private practices and private hospitals. It caters to a network of over 4,500 GP and consultant users.
With this move, the brand’s operations parallel to Harley Street will grow to 8,000 sqft, or tenfold the size of its original location in 2015.
The transformation of two 18th Century Georgian properties into one streamlined clinical space is already underway. In addition to generic and branded medicines, the plans also include dedicated sub-divided areas for controlled, refrigerated and biological medications.
A 30ft multi-arm dispensing robot (above), unprecedented in central London, will soon occupy one wing of the new premises, with medication chutes spiralling down through the floor to the spacious modern dispensary beneath. This robotic automation is projected to improve overall efficiency and enhance rapid availability of the broadest possible pharmacy formulary.
Pharmacierge co-founders Edward and Robert Ungar previously co-founded The Doctor’s Laboratory (TDL), also on Wimpole Street, and other pharmacies within the Marylebone and Mayfair estates.
“While our mPrescribe technology now equally serves clinicians and patients outside of London, we felt very strongly that only a local investment would remain faithful to our brand values, our roots and the private medical community who have supported us through thick and thin,” said CEO Edward Ungar.
