A pharmacy has opened in Castle Hill, Ebbsfleet Garden City.
Delmergate Pharmacy, which is based in Kent, will open at the Castle Hill Local Centre in the Garden City.
The pharmacy, which is a family run and multi-award winning chain, almost did not get off the ground. A number of applications were made unsuccessfully over two years but when Ebbsfleet Development Corporation was asked to step in and help with the appeal to overturn the decision, it did.
A licence was granted following a successful appeal to NHS England.
Jayesh Patel, Managing Director of Delmergate Pharmacy said: “This is the result of 3 years hard work and we are delighted with the outcome. We hope that we will have the full support of local residents and look forward to serving the community of Ebbsfleet.”
