A north Norfolk pharmacy which previously apologised to its customers after facing “operational challenges” has said it is not experiencing staff shortages.

Well Pharmacy is the largest independent pharmacy company in the country and runs the Mundesley centre in High Street.

The pharmacy had to temporarily close during normal opening hours earlier this year which was believed to be caused by staff shortages.

Well Pharmacy apologised for the drop-off in its normal level of customer service, which it said was due to “operational challenges”.

However, the pharmacy chain has now said it is not currently facing a staff shortage.

A Well Pharmacy spokesperson said: “There are currently no long-term operational challenges. 

“No redundancies have been made at Well Mundesley, and there are no long-term issues around staff shortages.”

It comes as 82pc of pharmacy team members at NHS community pharmacies in England reported staff shortages, with 23pc of pharmacy owners and head office representatives saying they had to close because of this, according to the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) ‘The Pharmacy Pressures Survey’ 2022.
