What is McKesson Europe doing for the health of our communities and our planet?

Together we are committed to people and their well-being: with logistics know-how, pharmaceutical expertise, local presence – and the great commitment of our employees.

But how exactly do we promote the commitment that our employees demonstrate? How can we help our customers improve their quality of life? And how do we ensure a sustainable use of resources that contributes to the better health of our planet?

In addition to their work at McKesson, some colleagues support valuable charitable initiatives in their free time. We are proud of this – and support projects with up to $2,500 as part of our Community Heroes programme.

Bringing cancer treatment closer to home

LloydsPharmacy UK has partnered with NHS Trust to deliver chemotherapy treatment to patients outside of hospital in a mobile unit. This service supports to release capacity for hospitals and most importantly, improve the patient experience. Bringing care closer to home allows patients to live their lives as normally as possible.

Going through treatment can be a stressful time for patients and their families, so providing alternative options can help them feel more in control. Whether it’s at home, in hospital or in a mobile unit, patients should be able to choose to receive their care in an environment they feel most comfortable.

Ung Cancer at Sweden

A few years ago, our LloydsApotek in Sweden surveyed its employees to identify the nonprofits they most wished to support. One of their top pick was Ung Cancer (Young Cancer), which provides psychosocial and community support to young cancer patients.

At LloydsApotek we strive to provide better health, and of course children and young people have a special place in all our hearts, especially those affected by cancer diseases. That’s why it feels natural to donate to Ung Cancer, instead of putting the money in holiday gifts for our staff. It’s a joint decision about something, that we all see as a very important job.

On average, we renew our electronic devices in the company every five years. In order to guarantee that equipment is meaningfully re-used and disposed of in a sustainable way, we have decided to work together with AfB.
