Corporate Information

We have been providing healthcare and wellbeing services for over 70 years, employing over 7000 dedicated professionals and provide these services in local communities all over the UK.

Formerly the Co-operative Pharmacy, we were acquired by Bestway from the Co-operative Group in October 2014, in a deal worth £620 million.

As of October 2015, the Co-operative pharmacy brand was officially retired and all 794 Co-operative pharmacies relaunched as ‘Well’. Bestway is a family-owned business that prides itself on being at the heart of local communities. It owns the chain of Best-one convenience stores, and has committed to invest £200m into Well, aiming to grow our annual revenues from £750M to £1BN by 2019.

We are now the country’s largest independent pharmacy chain, serving 1.3 million customers every week and dispensing 74 million prescriptions each year. We are also the largest pharmacy chain overall in Wales, and our presence across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland makes us the third largest pharmacy chain overall across the UK.
