Our Company

About Us

At Allan Pharmacy we understand the importance of providing excellent prescription services as well as first class information, advice and education on health matters to our customers.

The pharmacy was originally opened in the mid-1960’s by a Mr Winslow,and then purchased by Sandy Black in the mid-late 1970’s. He was succeeded by Iain Allan the current owner who purchased the pharmacy in November 1991.

We are situated in Muirhouse and this area underwent a major renovation in 1996. We moved to our current premises in January 2007 which provided modern premises along with plenty of free parking and easy access from the main artery Shields Road. Much new building of private and council homes followed and now the area is thriving again!

We pride ourselves on a fast and efficient service and with being here for so long, we have a personal knowledge of many of our patients. We can remember many of their parents and grandparents! We have a very low turnover of staff and we believe this helps to foster relationships with customers and loyalty.

We are only a mile away from the nearest surgery and we collect daily from surgeries in Motherwell and Wishaw. We also operate an ordering service as well to assist patients.
