The new store at Guy’s will employ 25 local people.
Sainsbury’s has today (Wednesday 10 September) opened the first combined convenience store and community pharmacy on a hospital site.
The new store at Guy’s offers a range of goods for patients, staff and visitors to the hospital and will employ 25 local people.
It will be open from 7am to 11pm, seven days a week.
Sainsbury’s has been providing a pharmacy service to outpatients at Guy’s Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital since 2012.
Victoria Cheston, Commercial Director at the Trust, says: “Until now, Guy's hasn’t enjoyed the same variety of retail facilities as St Thomas’. The new store is a great addition and provides patients, staff and visitors with a wonderful new facility.“
The Sainsbury’s store is located on Great Maze Pond, just round the corner from the main entrance to Guy’s Hospital.
