2021 has been a year like no other and as the year draws to a close, we’ve looked at some of the ways that LloydsPharmacy has been here for you.
18,212 kg of weight lost and counting
As part of our Medicated weight loss service, we have helped customers collectively lose over 18,212 kg of weight and we’re still counting. Our weight loss service is for those who have tried everything else and are looking to get their Body Mass Index (BMI) within a healthy range and lower their risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Supported the NHS with COVID vaccination sites
We proudly supported the COVID-19 vaccination and booster programmes to protect our communities and to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Gave flu the boot
We had our biggest year yet with our community immunity flu and pneumonia vaccination services. In fact, during the first two weeks we saw over 100,000 bookings for our in-store flu jabs. We were helped by David Seaman and Swallownest FC.
Celebrated 5 years in partnership with Sainsbury's
September 2021 marked 5 years of our services being accessible in branches of Sainsbury’s, helping us to support our communities, even as you do your weekly shop.
10,000 in-store dementia friends
We continued our charity partnership with Alzheimer’s Society, reaching over 10,000 dementia friends in store, and we took part in lots of fundraising activities including Elf Day, Dementia Action Week and Jokes on you Dementia.
Our #HealthHerWay women’s health campaign aimed to help every woman feel empowered and take care of their own health. We collaborated with Love Honey and their sex and relationship expert Oloni as well as hosted a women’s health expert panel between a range of health experts and female representatives.
We're here for sexual health
Our sexual health campaign ran for 3 months to share our advice and knowledge on all things sexual health. We surveyed over 1,000 participants to understand everything they wanted to know around sexual health and even hit the streets of London to talk to people directly about their sexual health. We finished the campaign in September with our A-Z of sexual health, covering everything from Ask us anything to Zero pressure.
1st NAM aidsmap partnership
As part of our sexual health campaign, we sponsored a series of aidsmapCHAT, a broadcast for people living with HIV, and we were the sole sponsors of their Pride special, broadcast on 28th June 2021.
2022 and beyond
With 1,400 pharmacies all over the UK, LloydsPharmacy.com and our LloydsDirect prescription service as well as LloydsPharmacy Online Doctor, we’re here for you in 2022.
