What we do

As one of the leading integrated service providers for wholesale and retail in the healthcare sector, McKesson Europe offers innovative and efficient healthcare services. Both for end customers in pharmacies and as a reliable partner for pharmacies and manufacturers. Through our pharmacies and network of logistics centres we reach approximately 15 million patients every day.

Customers back to top


McKesson Europe is one of the largest pharmacy operators in Europe. Every day, we serve over 2 million customers – at about 2,300 McKesson-owned pharmacies and at over 7,000 participants in the brand partnership schemes.

Our aim is to help our customers and pharmacies’ customers gain a more positive attitude towards life and increase their quality of life through our product range and innovative, efficient healthcare services.

Patients and consumers receive expert, reliable health advice through our pharmacies and cooperation partners. To ensure we can continue to offer this in the future, we place great value on regular and structured training for our pharmacists and pharmaceutical technicians.

In addition to deepening pharmaceutical knowledge, training sessions focus on issues such as advising customers, communication skills and organisation in the work place. Parallel to our services, our special customer loyalty programmes also enable us to retain customers. The expansion of the European Pharmacy Network (EPN) to include key categories "skin care" and "pain control" is making an additional impact.

Our aim is to help our customers and pharmacies’ customers gain a more positive attitude towards life and increase their quality of life through our product range and services. To ensure this, we are strengthening the role of the pharmacies as pharmaceutically competent healthcare advisers for patients and consumers and as a service provider for the healthcare system.
