People in Heckington are set to benefit from more health services at a newly developed £400,000 pharmacy, which will open at the beginning of April.

Lincolnshire Co-op has converted the former newsagents on the High Street and will be moving Heckington Pharmacy into the new premises. The pharmacy will open to customers on Saturday 1st April at 9am.

The new site will provide better access for patients and customers, extra parking and features a bigger consultation room, seating and dispensing area. The current pharmacy on High Street will close as normal at 6pm on Friday 31st March.

Work has included demolishing parts of the former newsagents to create a bigger pedestrian footpath to the Lincolnshire Co-op food store adjacent to the site, as well as widen vehicle access to the car park. A flat has also been created above the retail space.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Head of Pharmacy Alastair Farquhar said: “We’re delighted to have developed this bright, new pharmacy space for our loyal customers in Heckington.

“The new outlet will not only offer NHS services such as Medication Use Reviews, New Medicine Service, flu vaccinations and smoking cessation but we will also be offering health checks, prescription collection from local surgeries and a delivery service. 

“The move will also bring our pharmacy and food store closer together. We hope this will create a convenient hub for shoppers and members.”
