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 grateful for the excellent work placements that a number of the local Medicare branches have provided for our A-level students over the past 10 years.  By spending a week shadowing the staff, students have gained an invaluable insight into the role of a pharmacist and this has greatly helped clarify their future higher education and career options.  We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Medicare in the future.
