PR Photographer at Lloyds Pharmacy in Emsworth, Hampshire

Today was an interesting job for me and on my doorstep - I was the PR photographer who was asked to capture some images at the opening ceremony at Lloyds Pharmacy in Emsworth.

The press release will give you some more info about this event and my role:


Led by pharmacist, Angela Burton, the team at LloydsPharmacy, Emsworth, officially opened a new concept in pharmacy on 24 October.

The Emsworth team is one of the first in the UK to offer LloydsPharmacy’s new approach to community health which has been developed to improve access to healthcare information and support.

The ribbon was cut by Mrs Onslow, a long-standing customer at the pharmacy, who recently celebrated her 102nd birthday.

As part of the transformation, the pharmacy now offers free, enhanced services for a range of conditions including skin health and pain management.

The pharmacy’s new skin offering covers all aspects of skin health from medicines management advice for people on prescription treatment to medicated skin products.

Angela said: “We are delighted to be one of the pioneers in a project that will do much to raise awareness of healthcare needs at a local level.

“With skin conditions, a change in treatment and application techniques can make all the difference, which is why we have developed our skin advice service. With effective management, symptoms can be reduced and those with the condition can start to take back control of their life.”

Pain management is another area where the Emsworth pharmacy team now offers enhanced support. The LloydsPharmacy pain control service has been found to improve 46 percent of people’s pain after just four weeks of taking the pharmacist’s advice.

“We know many who suffer from long-term health conditions don’t always want to go to their doctor every time they have a question,” Angela continued.

“What we are doing is providing services that complement GPs and other healthcare professionals by offering convenient, one-to-one support in pleasant, modern surroundings.”

The team members at LloydsPharmacy Emsworth are dedicated and experienced in supporting local residents’ healthcare needs. Many have worked with LloydsPharmacy for a number of years. Angela Burton has been at LloydsPharmacy in Emsworth for six years’ experience, Alicia Cranston, four and Ruth Fisher, Alison Honeyset and Maureen Tucker have all been with the pharmacy for two years.
