About the employer

Supporting the city of Coventry and its residents, Styvechale Pharmacy has a wide range of NHS & Private services to meet your healthcare needs. Styvechale Pharmacy is an independent community pharmacy serving Coventry. Located in south Coventry, we are very close to the A46 and the ring road, meaning that we are incredibly accessible. This long and well-established pharmacy was purchased in October 2005 by husband and wife team, Pradeep and Renu Duggal, and has since doubled in size with both prescriptions and staff numbers. Our goal is to serve our patients and community as professionally and efficiently as possible, in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. We constantly look to improve and provide services that give our customers as much convenience as possible, with well established and very popular phlebotomy and flu vaccination clinics, as well as providing new services like the 24/7 prescription collection point and ear irrigation service.
