Our Story

Business owner and pharmacist, Gemma McCartan, applied for the new pharmacy license in January 2013 and on approval, opened the doors of McCartan’s Pharmacy for the first time on the 1st of May 2014. Since then, the pharmacy has gone from strength to strength, serving the local community and its surrounding hinterlands.

As a family-run business, McCartan’s Pharmacy’s first concern is customer well-being, aiming to provide a warm, welcoming space for customers while providing professional, personal advice. The dedicated McCartan’s Pharmacy team consists of pharmacists, technicians, and dispensary assistants, as well as skin-care experts, make-up artists and specialists in personal health.

Here at McCartan’s, we provide an extensive range of services including a Healthy Heart Check, Strep. A Throat Swab, Food Intolerance Testing and Blood Pressure readings. We also pride ourselves on supporting local, Irish brands across our store including Green Angel, Fuschia, LMD, bPerfect, Luna, Spotlight Oral Care, BellaMianta and many more. 

Over the last six years, our team has delivered a wide range of programmes to the local community, including support groups for women’s health, chronic pain, and children with autism and type 1 diabetes. As a result of this work and our driven approach to service, our team have been awarded The Independent Community Pharmacy of the Year Award NI 2018, The eHealth and Innovation in Pharmacy Practice Award 2019 and The Pharmacy Team of the Year Award UK 2019, presented at the Houses of Parliament, Westminster.

Our mission is to provide a service of the highest quality to the community, while creating a safe, accessible environment, achieving this through our team of motivated, passionate, and competent staff.
