Running your chemist shop often requires professional help. At Rangewell, we not only help pharmacists and chemist shop owners secure funding, we can help them find the professional support they need.

Acquiring, selling or simply running a chemist shop business requires the support of professionals with expertise in the pharmacy sector. You can find those experts here - in the Rangewell Professional Pharmacy Support Services Directory.

Whether your focus is on your pharmacy practice or operating your chemist shop as a retail business, you must be able to call on professional support.

Providing that support requires specialist knowledge of the sector.

At Rangewell, as part of our commitment to supporting UK businesses, we have put together a directory of professionals who can provide the specialist support you need - and made it free for you to use. 

So, if you find you need professional expertise, check out the Rangewell Professional Pharmacy Support Services Directory for details of the individuals, businesses and practices who can help you and your practice or shop succeed. 


The accountancy profession includes many firms which focus on specific sectors.

This focus can allow them to develop specialised knowledge of the factors that affect your business. This means knowing about allowances, regulations and income streams which more generalised accountants may not be aware of, but which could make a big difference to your financial situation.

See how a specialised accountant can help maximise profits and minimise tax liabilities for your pharmacy or chemist shop practice.


Running a pharmacy naturally requires the latest pharmacological knowledge. But a high street chemist shop is also a business. It means a huge range of challenges, from those of setting up a wellness centre and prescription automation to the latest trends in cosmetics and electrical beauty. 

Advisors to the profession can provide access to cutting-edge knowledge on every aspect of managing your business, helping you deal with issues and challenges on every level - from HR and staffing to dealing with competition from the franchise chains.

Find out more about the help a professional advisor can provide you.

Legal services

Every business needs the support of legal services. You will need to draw up contracts for staff, suppliers and landlords. Partnerships must be legally watertight, and negotiations with public authorities and health trusts need the support of carefully worded agreements.

You may also need legal support to deal quickly and effectively with disputes.

Knowledge of the sector and the relevant legal precedents can be essential. See legal support for pharmacists with specific expertise of the chemist and pharmaceutical sectors here.

Equipment Providers

Your pharmacy practice will require a wide range of equipment. You may even be considering automated dispensing. You will certainly need effective display and merchandising systems for your sales area. 

However, you will also need an IT system to run your business efficiently, and to help with everything from stock ordering to patient record keeping.

Specialised equipment suppliers can answer all your needs. You can find details of the suppliers for the chemist shop and pharmaceutical profession here


If you are planning a sale, acquisition or merger, or seeking funding, the most important step may be getting accurate valuations and costings for your business. 

Specialist skills and understanding of the pharmacy and chemist shop sector will be necessary. Experienced valuers can provide informed advice, supported by access to contemporary trading and transactional evidence.

At Rangewell, we can introduce you to the surveyors and valuers whose work for the sector is recognised and accepted by banks, institutions and industry operators. Find them here
