Phil Galt Named as New UK Managing Director

Cegedim Rx, the pharmacy entity of Cegedim Healthcare Solutions UK, has named former superintendent pharmacist and National Pharmacy Association director, Phil Galt, as its new community pharmacy managing director in the UK.

Phil Galt's Professional Journey 

As a qualified pharmacist, Phil has more than two decades of experience working at the coalface of community pharmacy, both in care and technology delivery and as a successful business leader within it.  

More recently, Phil held the dual role of managing director and superintendent pharmacist for independent, 32-strong chain, Lindsay & Gilmour Pharmacy. 

He has held the positions of non-executive director on the board of the National Pharmacy Association Insurance Company (NPAI) and as a director of the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies (AIMp). 

Leadership Transition at Cegedim Healthcare Solutions

Phil was also a trustee for the NPA Health Education Foundation, a charity set up to advance public education in the prevention and proper treatment of disease by encouraging greater research within community pharmacy. 

Phil has been passed the Cegedim Healthcare Solutions’ leadership baton from Adam Dennett, who after a successful ten-year tenure with the award-winning pharmacy software provider, is stepping down to pursue a new career outside of healthcare. 

Commenting on this appointment, Tristan de Foucher, head of European operations for Cegedim Group, said:

Adam has been a force of nature in this business for the past 10 years. Under his leadership the team has continuously and successfully invested in and driven product innovation to stay ahead of the ever-changing demands placed upon community pharmacy.” 

Cegedim Rx provides community pharmacists with a fully integrated, intelligent pharmacy business solution designed to streamline real-time operations, optimise performance, increase revenue opportunities and transform the pharmacy experience for both staff and patients. 

Its pharmacy software suite of solutions includes leading PMR system Pharmacy Manager, Pharmacy Services and Pharmacy Intelligence Hub. Pharmacy Manager has been voted as Product of the Year in the Technology/IT category of the Independent Community Pharmacy Awards for several years running.


Phil's Future Endeavours and Vision

Phil commented:

I know the pressures of delivering frontline care in community pharmacy and just how challenging it can be to juggle this alongside managing a sustainable and profitable business. I’m therefore truly looking forward to bringing Cegedim Rx my 20 years of customer experience and industry expertise in order to accelerate the company’s product innovation and revenue growth.”

Tristan de Foucher added:

Phil Galt is an industry visionary with a proven track record of execution. We are delighted to have someone of his calibre and industry experience join the company. It is an exciting moment in the life of Cegedim Rx and we welcome his leadership to federate the team behind his expertise, enable enhanced support to pharmacists and deliver better patient outcomes.”
