National community pharmacy chain, Lloydspharmacy has appointed Phil Streatfield as Supply Chain and Business Efficiency Director. This Board-level role will oversee the end-to-end supply chain, business efficiency improvement, and IT, including the ongoing roll-out of the chain’s SAP business management software.

Phil originally trained as an analytical chemist, before undertaking a number of roles in the pharmaceutical industry.

Phil comments “It’s fantastic to have a role that brings together my experience in the pharmaceutical industry with my retail supply chain knowledge. There is a lot of pressure in the retail world at the moment and there is real energy at Lloydspharmacy to make a difference to how we support peoples’ healthcare. Improvements to the supply chain and business productivity will allow staff to spend more time with customers. The challenge is to bring together our 1,640 stores to generate some national leverage.”

I’m very pleased he is joining us at Lloydspharmacy. His role is critical as we look at how we can drive efficiency through the business from manufacturer to patient. The better we can do this, the better we can serve our customers, giving them the service and time that they value.”
