On Tuesday 1st September 2020, management of Well Pharmacy in Carnforth changed to become an independently owned local community pharmacy called Carnforth Pharmacy.
It was officially opened by Carnforth Mayor, Kath Bromilow MBE, supported by Linda Lambson, President of Carnforth Rotary.
The owners, Ben Fell, the Superintendent Pharmacist, and his wife Emily, a graphic designer, are a local couple who reside in Halton with their 6-year-old son James.
Ben has been a pharmacist for over 10 years, working predominantly in the Lancaster area and serving our local communities with all their healthcare needs.
He is also the treasurer for Community Pharmacy Lancashire, the representative body for all community pharmacies in Lancashire.
His dream has always been to own his own pharmacy so that he can dedicate his time, skillset and passion to his customers, staff and local community.
The pharmacy itself has been serving Carnforth and the surrounding areas for over 60 years and Ben will be continuing that. His vision for the future is for Carnforth Pharmacy to work alongside the other healthcare providers, community groups and local organisations to provide excellent joined-up care in our area.
"Carnforth is a lovely town with a real community spirit. The existing staff at the pharmacy are brilliant and an excellent asset to the business. I want to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and shows how all of us here at the pharmacy genuinely care for the wellbeing of each and every one of our customers."
The entire pharmacy has had a re-brand and refresh, designed and created by his wife Emily, who is the founder and creative director of her own design business, Realm Media Ltd.
Ben, Emily and the Carnforth Pharmacy team look forward to welcoming you into your local high street pharmacy during your next visit to Carnforth and for many years to come.
