Medicines optimisation provider Prescribing Support Services joins forces with McKesson UK


We are delighted to announce that today Prescribing Support Services (PSS) becomes a part of the McKesson UK family, a change of ownership that represents an exciting new chapter in the life of the business.

McKesson UK have released the following statement:

“PSS has demonstrated true leadership in primary care pharmacy and pushed the boundaries of medicines optimisation services delivered by their experienced teams of clinicians. With an aging population, more patients with long term conditions and health budgets under ever greater scrutiny, all healthcare providers must focus upon reducing medicines waste, preventing emergency admissions to hospital and delivering better patient outcomes.

We believe that this change will deliver additional benefits to our NHS partners and the patients they serve going forward and should you have any questions please get in touch. We are incredibly excited by this addition and its contribution to a future model for pharmacy in the UK.”

Results Healthcare, the leading Healthcare and Life Science M&A firm, advised PSS and Optimed. The Results Healthcare team included James West, Keith Hunt and Lois Groden.
