Tollesbury Pharmacy opened in November 2008 and has gone from strength to strength.

Dimple Bhatia - is the Superintendent Pharmacist and has worked in the Maldon area for over 10 years. Dimple qualified with BSc(HONS) in Pharmacy in 1996 from Aston University in Birmingham. During his undergraduate days Dimple showed an interest in cost effective prescribing and pharmacy practice. His undergraduate project involved the rates of generic prescribing at a district general hospital. On graduating Dimple carried out his Pre-Reg year at BootsThe Chemists in Ilford, Essex, where under the supervision of an excellent management team firmly established Sunday Trading and he became Sunday Manager. Upon qualifying as a pharmacist Dimple moved to Boots The Chemist, Central London and Worked as a relief pharmacist in District 81, covering Holborn, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street Stores. Dimple was then appointed Store pharmacist at Boots, Picaddilly Circus and then promoted to Operations Manager.

Dimple missed his clinical interaction with patients so decided to leave Boots in 1999 and begain as a self employed locum, working for all the major chains and some smaller independents. It is then that Dimple realised that there was a better way of providing pharmaceutical services and realise what patients wanted and needed from their community pharmacist. In 2001 Dimple successfully passed The Diploma in Therapeutics at The College Of Medicine Wales. After settling in Maldon and working at a busy independent for a number of years Dimple decided to open his own pharmacy.

Dimple and his team believe in a WORLD class service which EXCEEDS the patients experience at EVERY level of interaction. We all choose where to buy our bread from and which airline to fly with, although price is a factor, the service, customer experience and back up, we believe are even more important. That’s why Tollesbury Pharmacy now not only deals with patients locally but has a list of regular patients from around the UK.

Tollesbury Pharmacy has over 100 years of Community Pharmacy experience amongst it’s staff; being 100% independent and privately owned means the people you speak to are the ones making the decisions, we are not tied to any supplier or any group. Tollesbury Pharmacy has the means of dealing with any company to satisfy the needs of its patients.
