The Leicestershire Independent Pharmacy Federation continues to go from strength to strength. The Association has come a long way since winning the 2015 C+D Award for Business Initiative of the Year. 

LIPCO Healthcare recognises that after many years devoted to running a business, it’s extremely difficult for independent pharmacists to embrace any another existence. LIPCO Chair, Mukesh Lad said “Business survival strategy and financial viability are now amongst the biggest concerns for every independent owner. LIPCO is therefore here to provide advice  and support on securing the future of the sector.  There’s a need in Leicestershire and Rutland for the us to join forces for our mutual benefit”.

Now into its 5th year, LIPCO has a membership of more than 50 pharmacy contractors. Having achieved considerable procurement success to date, LIPCO has enabled its members to deliver locally commissioned services and develop innovative projects to support the health improvement of our local population.  “It’s now more important than ever”, says Mukesh “that the independent sector now proves it’s an indispensible network of highly skilled professionals that’s capable of sensible and legitimate negotiation”
