Proposed acquisition of EMIS Group

Major contract gives EMIS Health up to 50% share of community pharmacy market

16 Mar 2016

EMIS Health has announced a major contract with Celesio UK to extend its market share providing community pharmacy systems and services to up to 7,000 community pharmacies.

The contract with Celesio UK expands the companies’ current agreement covering AAH’s third party Proscript Link customer estate of around 2,000 pharmacies to add up to 1,800 Lloyds pharmacies in the UK. The contract cements EMIS Health’s position as the sector’s market leader. It will provide the ProScript patient medication record system to up to 50% of community pharmacies in the UK, close to its GP coverage of over 50%.

“Being able to seamlessly interact with GPs now and with other healthcare providers in the near future in order to enhance the service to patients is paramount for Lloyds Pharmacies and for our AAH Proscript Link customers.”

Chris Frost, sales director at AAH Pharmaceuticals
