Over 2500 UK pharmacies are buying group members. By working together, these pharmacies benefit from the negotiating ability of a larger group, networking opportunities, training, development and business support. Cegedim Rx supports buying groups and works hard to build relationships, providing assistance tailored to each specific buying group. If you are a member of a buying group simply contact your local Cegedim Rx account manager to find out what support we offer.
Here are some of the buying groups we work with:
AlbaPharm is a buying and support group for independent community pharmacies which strives to support pharmacists in meeting patients needs and to manage their businesses more efficiently to increase profitability. AlbaPharm is working to raise the profile of independent community pharmacy within the health sector. AlbaPharm now has 300 members across Scotland, Northern Ireland, the north of England, and Wales. Cegedim Rx and AlbaPharm have a close working relationship which gives a discount on new Cegedim Rx systems to AlbaPharm members.

The Propharm Group is a buying group and most of our members are based in London. Membership of our group has the benefit of preferential prices that have been negotiated with most of our major suppliers,as well as group forums where training and networking go side by side. One such example is our relationship with Cegedimrx, that goes from strength to strength, from negotiated deals to evening training sessions, and ongoing support.Our charity work must not be forgotten and again with support from Cegedimrx is inspirational..
