Pharmacies who have an online presence stand out from their competition. When pharmacies have an active and positive digital footprint it can lead to better conversion rates and increased patient footfall.

Think about your digital presence, if you have a website make sure you keep it up to date and relevant. It’s important to understand and make use of all available social media activities such as Facebook and Twitter. In this generation, patients are increasing using digital platforms to find out more on clinical information and services that are available close to them without having to arrange an appointment with their GP which could take more time than walking into their local pharmacy.

The Business Partners within this section are here to help put you on the digital map and have more patients directed to pharmacies to not only help increase footfall but to also improve the types of services you can offer and the opportunity to upsell to new patients.

See below the range of services that are available from our Business Partners to help increase your patient footfall.
