  • Assura Pharmacy

    Assura have just bought out some pharmacies in my patch.
    What are they like - I've looked at their website and it looks impressive - Are they as good in reality?

    How would you compare them to the other multiples?

    Saw an advert in todays PJ - Robbie Turner the regional manager is exceptional. I rate the companies potential to deliver as excellent. The line about compulsive high achiever is probably true.

      They run the pharmacy which is part of the super surgery I work at. Waiting times are long, the systems seem a little inefficient and the staff appear stressed! Just MHO of course.

        Hiya,

        I have locumed for Assura. they are very very good. Prompt payments, very nice environment, well organised and excellent staff. I worked in their Borden store, West Byfleet store (busy), Ashford and Shenfield.

        Day Lewis used to be my number 1 choice but Assura are kicking *** and taking numbers! lol

          I have kind of answered my own question.
          I locumed for them at a recent acquisition last Tuesday and today I have been paid! Much better than other companies.
          They were installing the Positive Solutions system (which I actually like) and their IT setup looks good.
          Other transitions were still in progress.
          Overall my first impressions are they look OK.

            There I.T. setup is pretty good. I know they has some teething problems but the rate at which they are expanding things are bound to go wrong sometimes.

            I am impressed with the way they look after us locums and their pharmacy manager packages look really good.

            If an Assura opens up my way then I might be interested!
