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.

Medicare Chemists Ltd play an essential role in helping to make the University's well established Pharmacy International Student Exchange Programme with Wilkes University USA extremely popular. The American students who come to Huddersfield invariably comment on how delighted they have been to witness how community pharmacy is practised in this country compared to their own.
