The heart of community: Unichem Prestons


Home is where the pharmacist is – at least that’s how the saying goes at Unichem Prestons. Pharmacist and pharmacy owner Ed Dawwas points out, “We are different because we like to engage with our community”.

So much so, as one of their many services, they can conduct a home visit to help you in your medicine management. As we welcome autumn with a true sense of community spirit, the pharmacists at Unichem Prestons are preparing the surrounding community for the upcoming cold and flu season by providing free flu vaccines to pregnant women and patients sixty-five and over. To further protect yourself and loved ones from the potential cold and flu, pharmacists at Unichem Prestons are ready to answer your questions about other forms of preventative care including supplements and medicines.

Ed Dawwas describes Unichem Prestons’ role in the community as this: “We’re the first or last point of contact before a patient goes to the doctor or home with their medication. We have an obligation to enable patients to manage their health and what the doctor has prescribed them”. Be a part of the Unichem Prestons community.
