Strachan Pharmacy

Strachan Pharmacy is a family run business. John Strachan qualified as a pharmacist in 1993 with a BSc (Honours) and then took a further degree in Clinical Pharmacy providing an MSc (Clinical Pharmacy) in 2003.

The Turriff Pharmacy branch was bought in 2003 and we have seen exponential growth in business over the period. Alastair Wright (MPharm) is the full time pharmacist here.

In 2010 John Strachan was awarded the Community Care Award for Scotland for services provided. It was a patient nominated award which made it even more significant. Strachan Pharmacy in Turriff was among the first pharmacies in the UK to carry out Private Flu Vaccinations. This has now been extended to Occupational Health and our reputation has grown through this. Two re-fits over recent years has seen the pharmacy modernize with a gift department, private consulting room and automatic doors.

The Banff branch of Strachan Pharmacy was bought in September 2012. a very unique pharmacy comprising 3 floors and providing a coffee shop (Munch Coffee Shop), two Beauty Salons (Glamour Beauty), a perfumery, gift shop, dispensary, consulting room and front shop. Emma Lindsay (MPharm) is the full time pharmacist here and has been so since 2010. Already we have seen much growth in all departments with exciting re-fits planned for the near future.

We sponsor local football teams Turriff United FC, Cuminestown FC and Deveronvale FC. Also we have a special interest in a local charity “The Talking Banffie and Turra Talk” two local newspapers for the blind whom we provide financial support.

Customers are guaranteed an efficient and excellent service in both our pharmacies from our wonderful 24 staff members who we value deeply.
