A Long Melford pharmacy has relocated to new premises in the west Suffolk village after landing a six-figure funding deal with the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

The Pharmacy has moved near the post office on Hall Street and following the acquisition of the building, owners Nick Hunt and wife Yanli Wang extended and fully renovated the property.

The new air conditioned spacious store has a large dispensary area, three private consultation rooms and a comfortable waiting area, and Sudbury-based firm TCI carried out the renovation work.

In addition to dispensing NHS, private and veterinary prescriptions, The Pharmacy also offers many other NHS and private services, including NHS health checks and cholesterol testing.

Nick Hunt, director of The Pharmacy, said: “We are thrilled with the new pharmacy. We set out to create a more modern store that would enable us to provide an enhanced service and better facilities for local residents and we have done just that.

“We have a lot more dispensary space than at our previous location and the consultation rooms are a vast improvement, enabling us to provide services more easily.

“The conversion and extension work carried out by TCI has been excellent and we have been amazed at how the building work has progressed so well. We encountered many unforeseen difficulties as a result of the age of the building which were overcome very efficiently.
