Rushport has secured a new pharmacy contract at the St James Retail Park in East Kilbride. The site is to the south of the town where a significant amount of new housing has been built in the last 10 years and is also close to the main railway station and Hairmyres Hospital.

Rushport worked with the developer of the site, Kean Properties, to secure the permission. The application was granted following on oral hearing at Health Board level and the appeals against the application being granted were dismissed by the NAP.

The pharmacy will open during summer 2014.
