About Medicare

Medicare was established in 1987 by Managing Director Afzal Khan and his brother, Director Asghar Khan - both qualified pharmacists.

From the outset their aim was to provide a local pharmacy service delivering healthcare to the community, ensuring that all their customers needs were met.

The family-run business now has seven chemists, located in the Huddersfield area - Bradley, Salendine, Marsh, Lockwood, Honley and two in Holmfirth - Elmwood Health Centre and Riverside, and employ over 30 staff.

They place great importance on customer service, and to ensure they remain on track they utilise a mystery shopper scheme and undertake an annual customer satisfaction survey, on which they score consistently highly.

We are very grateful to Medicare Chemists Ltd for their support over the years in accommodating our pharmacy students to provide valuable placement experience and useful learning. Additionally, they continue to offer a number employment opportunities for our Pharmacy graduates. The Department of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Huddersfield look forward to the continued support given by Medicare Chemists Ltd.
