What is C+D?

Chemist+Druggist (C+D) has proudly been providing the latest news and analysis to the UK’s community pharmacists and pharmacy staff for 160 years.

A weekly print magazine until 2016, C+D is now a digital-first publication, covering everything from breaking news and in-depth features, to CPD modules, interactive investigations and podcasts.

Our audience has grown with us – we are now read by an average of 114,400 unique users each month.

The C+D brand has also grown, and now encompasses an industry leading jobs website, the annual C+D Awards, and C+D Data – an essential database of around 100,000 pharmacy products. Meanwhile, the monthly Price List book and biannual Guide to OTC and Diagnostics remain essential resources to have at hand in your pharmacy.

Informing, championing and supporting community pharmacy since 1859

On September 12, 1859, the brothers William and Septimus Morgan published the first issue of The Chemist & Druggist.  

160 years later, we are staying true to their original values of informing, championing and supporting community pharmacy.  

You can read every past issue of C+D online at the Welcome Trust Library.
