A human centred approach
With nobody to take over the family business, Mrs Elliot was inundated with offers for this great location in an up-and-coming part of London. But one offer stood out.
Three years after graduating from Portsmouth University, Hitu Patel was ready to build his own pharmacy business. He had drive, commitment, and a deep desire to give every patient an exceptional level of service.
What he didn’t have was money to pay for the business.
“Without Mrs Elliot, Smartway Pharmaceuticals wouldn’t exist.
Her generosity gave me my start in pharmaceuticals but, more importantly, it taught me the importance of care, collaboration and trust. These are the values that underpin everything we do. That’s as true today, operating around the world, as it was from that small pharmacy in Battersea.”
Hitu Patel, Founder
A track record of success
Since that first pharmacy, Smartway has come a long way. Today, we’re proud to give customers, partners and patients the same care and quality worldwide.
