At Tesco Pharmacy, we always keep customers at the heart of what we do, from our specially trained Pharmacists providing information and support on cancer, heart diseases and diabetes to dispensing medication.
Our stores make sure our Pharmacists always receive uninterrupted breaks away from the pharmacy, to help them relax, refuel and recharge on or off site. Our pharmacy teams are supported by trained multi-skilled colleagues from across the store, available to support when required to maintain safe staffing and flexibility.

What's in it for you
Our Pharmacies are led and supported exclusively by Pharmacists; we are always looking to develop new ways to deliver the best service possible for our communities.
Our Pharmacy Managers are supported by wider store teams, such as security, stock replenishment, range management, and administration to ensure smooth and consistent experience for our customers and patients, whilst maintaining theirs and our colleagues safety.
Tesco Pharmacies offers colleagues a high level of working flexibility and control over their work rotas. This enables routine overlap periods with other pharmacists on duty, so ideas about patient care and colleague development can be worked on together.
