Pharma Storage solutions appointed to specify and install the Pharmacy stores for the Covid-19 field hospital inside Manchester G-Mex conference centre. Chosen by Manchester University NHS Foundation trust and NHS Shared Business Services to be the preferred supplier of pharmacy storage equipment to this field hospital.
Working closely with NHS Shared Business services NW and architects we were able to supply from our large UK made stocks this dispensary in under 5 days. Installation took no more than 15 hours on site with our experienced fitting team. We have installed various types of storage solutions from 4 posted racking for tote boxes and large boxed items through processing benches to rows of pull out drawers for fast moving medications. The 100+ squ metres site within G-Mex has fitted our Kydex anti-microbial wrapped work tops in light grey, these along with the drawer systems will offer the pharmacy team an array of option to supply up to 750 beds if required.
The modular nature of our UK made stock has been crucial to the decision to appoint PSS and our ability to react with speed and precision.
The client said “Thanks for all your help with setting up the Hospital within a couple of days. It has shown that Business in the Northwest area has the ability to meet this challenging build on time”

Montgomery House Surgery in Bicester serves 14,000 patients from their present site. Client’s goals were to increase the Dispensary services, create new prescription waiting and collections area.
Solution: Our proposal was to create a new super dispensary to achieve the stated Goals and to combine all new services into ONE super dispensary. This involved connecting adjoining rooms (see plan), creating a dedicated Prescription collection waiting area with PSS fast dispensing script collection drawers. This improved area has created a “ Grab and G0” efficient space and process.
To support the new services we installed our PSS dispensing drawers and work stations to walls and a central island. The finished plan offers the practice a more efficient and safer space, with improved environment for the staff.
Western Postform asked PSS to supply shelves and storage solutions for a recent project.
Alexanders Pharmacy chose Pharma Storage Solutions after visiting our website and appreciated the scope of work we offered. The pharmacy is a very busy dispensary and the re-fit was a challenge with the existing dispensary building requiring an extension and structural alteration.
PSS working with the practice team and their appointed builder were able to offer a full re-fit service allowing the dispensary to remain open 6 days a week. The brief required that the dispensary had to remain open despite the building work; this was achieved by PSS with a temporary stock storage system being constructed within the retail shop area. This use of our modular steel drawer system created a temporary dispensary area secure and stocked with minimal disruption to patients. “Staying open throughout the building work was a great relief”, said Sarah chief Pharmacist manager. Following the building work PSS created a ergonomically designed plan to raise the storage capacity and to increase work top space by 60% and with specific areas of storage for both medicines and finished scripts storage.
Empingham medical centre based in Rultand provides high quality medical care for Empingham and surrounding villages. As part of the comprehensive services the practice has a dispensary on site. PSS were appointed after a tender process with a winning design and competitive quotation. The project objectives were to re-fit an existing dispensary without the need to close or suspend services, to improve the efficiency and layout of the dispensary, with special interest on finished script storage.
Working closely with the dispensary manager and her team PSS developed a new dispensary plan and met the objectives with a modern stock drawer system; 25% more accessible work-tops and created fast retrieval script storage units in the dispensing hatch area. The resulting fit was completed over a weekend allowing the staff to replenish the stock ready for Monday business.
Sykes Pharmacy appointed PSS Pharmacy storage solutions td to design and build a new dispensary for Lancaster university campus. Relocating to an empty shell on the concourse (see before images) PSS were selected for their full design and re-fit capabilities. The designs were met with the approval of both the client and the Campus premises team. PSS fitted the whole site including new ceiling, led lighting, new flooring, new electrical wiring , complete new consultation room with new sinks and full data wiring and all the storage systems both retail shelving, counters and dispensary storage over a 4 day installation. Owner Mr Patel said “This new site is a great addition to our stable of stores and has been a good success on campus, well done PSS!
The Dunster Medical Centre recently relocated into a new purpose built building and chose PSS Pharmacy storage solutions to build their new practice dispensary. Lorne Marshall Dispensary manager worked closely with PSS to create the new dispensary.
“Working with PSS and their design team was a huge benefit in completing this build. Their 3D designs ensured we could keep the whole practice management team updated on the development, through costing and implementation with the whole team including the main builder contractor. This close liaison has resulted in a greatly improved dispensary and within budgets, delivered and installed with smooth efficiency”. A great success!
PSS Ltd were appointed to furnish and fit out the New Pharmacy at the QEII in Welwyn Garden City. Our presentation design was chosen above competitors for our range of equipment and fitting expertease.
The client required both internal services and retail pharmacy within the same area. Our design (see image) created a designated area for “In and Out” patient pharmacy, with our pull out drawers and workstations, whilst our retails expertease allowed for a consultation room, multiple counters and retail shelving.
Chief Pharmasist Andrew Hood said; ‘Working with PSS was a rewarding pocess. My team and I have enjoyed working closely with PSS and are delighted with the finished dispensary and retail Pharmacy. This is a new venture for the trust and we have already seen favourable results from this process”
Pharmacy storage solutions were selected by Budbrooke Surgery to consult on their dispensary layout and to increase the stock holding for completed script storage.
PSS visited the site and consulted with the staff and practice manager Jennifer Creighton. There followed a design that offered our pull out drawers throughout that increased the storage of stock within less space, this offered the opportunity to increase script waiting with our drawers, more closely positioned to the dispensary hatch.
The new dispensary fitted with new LED lighting offers a brighter more productive dispensary for Staff and patients with improved work flows.
The new design was accepted and the installation was completed over a weekend to reduce disruption to patients.
Another successful collaboration to complete a Pharmacy re fit within 5 days.

The Galletly medical practice appointed PSS to re-design and re fit their busy dispensary.
The Galletly practice based in south Lincolnshire supplies a comprehensive full medical service to over 9700 patients. As part of their constant commitment to improving services to their patients, the practice identified the need to improve their prescriptive output to meet patient needs within the boundaries of the existing dispensary. PSS were appointed to re-design the Dispensary and to meet the needs for increased prescription output and reduce waiting times.
PSS created a design that met the needs for more work top space, increased stock holding and script retrieval space. This was achieved by a combination of pull out drawers for stock density and traditional storage units for quick assembly. The finished prescriptions are stored alphabetically in PSS script drawers as well as traditional wall shelving.
The dispensary is open for long periods and PSS had to approach the refit whilst maintaining the constant requirement for pharmacy services. This was achieved by building a temporary dispensary in another part of the building, using our modular drawer system. This allowed the staff to re-locate the stock directly in to the pull out drawers and continue to dispense with the added bonus that the relocated stock was already in the new drawers being placed into the re-fitted dispensary. This allowed for the cost efficient refit of the dispensary room, and meant that the re-fit by PSS was completed within a single day.
Ian Robinson Business Partner was delighted with the seamless transformation of the dispensary and said, “We are delighted with the whole PSS approach to this project, we had agonised over the transformation and how this would impinge on our services. Thanks to PSS this was done professionally, on time and competitively priced. We are delighted with the results.”
PSS have created a temporary pharmacy at Galletly pharmacy in Bourne. This has been placed in a secure alternative room whilst PSS prepare and finish the main pharmacy. The temporary pharmacy has allowed the practice to continue to offer full services throughout the PSS refit and has reduced disruption to the general working of the practice.
