What we do

We improve care in every setting — one product, one partner, one patient at a time.

Because we improve care, we’re helping to improve lives. And that is what motivates McKesson Europe colleagues, every single day.

We partner with care providers, commissioners, pharmacies, manufacturers, governments and other stakeholders to deliver the right medicines, medical products and healthcare services to the patients who need them, when they need them — in a safe, timely and cost-effective way.

Pharmaceutical Distribution

For us, logistics isn’t all about delivering boxes. It’s a mother who has just been diagnosed with a rare muscle disease. Or a neighbor who needs more insulin. 

These people rely on us. 

And here’s why: 

We deliver all for better health. With over 100 distribution centres across Europe we deliver medicines and healthcare products to more than 55,000 pharmacies and hospitals every day. Unlike many other wholesalers, McKesson Europe operates full line warehouses that carry all pharmaceutical products available on the market.

Excellence is our top priority. We’re taking care of what matters most to people – their health. That’s why we are striving for the highest standards in supply chain security and quality combined with excellent processes. 

Better health for all. Profitable pharmacies are good for our business, yes. But they also ease the burden on healthcare systems – and that’s good for us all. Why? Because pharmacies are the most accessible and least expensive primary care setting. Treating people in pharmacy reduces costs in more expensive secondary and tertiary healthcare sites. 

We drive innovation – to get the right therapy to the right patient at the right time.
 

Retail Pharmacy

Whether it’s a cough or hay fever, when people seek medical help or advice, the pharmacy is often their first port of call. Community pharmacists engage every day with people who buy over-the-counter medicines, collect prescriptions or ask for advice. 

What matters to patients, matters to us. In our 2,000+ owned pharmacies and with 8,000+ members in our brand partnership programmes, pharmacists improve the lives of millions of people, every day. 

We’re the backbone of the pharmacy business. By providing pharmacists with what they need to run their business, they have more time to do what they do best: delivering the best possible care to patients. 

Better health for all. Providing accessible patient care through community pharmacies eases the burden on other parts of the healthcare system – and that’s good for everyone. 

Because for us, it’s not just a package, it’s a patient.

It’s not just a job, it’s a purpose.
It’s not just a company. It’s McKesson.
