The managing director of Celesio UK, Cormac Tobin, has left the company which includes LLoydsPharmacy and AAH Pharmaceuticals.

Mr Tobin spent more than 10 years with the Celesio group. He had “overseen three major acquisitions, introduced the UK’s first Prescription Assembly Solution (PAS) that has revolutionised off-site dispensing and embedded a ‘customer first’ culture across the workforce which now numbers around 25,000.”

Last week, Celesio UK announced that it was intending to close or sell off around 190 LloydsPharmacy stores in England as a result of pharmacy reimbursement cuts imposed by the Department of Health and NHS England.

Celesio UK is part of McKesson Europe. Brian Tyler, chairman of the management board of McKesson Europe, said: “Cormac has been an energetic and trusted leader of our UK and Ireland businesses. He has built a strong leadership team for Celesio UK and his warm and engaging personality made him many friends across community pharmacy and beyond. There is a genuine affection for him amongst our colleagues who value his ability to understand customers and patients and put them at the heart of everything we do.”

Mr Tobin has left Celesio UK with immediate effect and the remaining members of its Board will manage the business whilst a successor is sought, reporting to Brian Tyler.
