We built Pharmacy First’s first website way back in 2009. Having served them very well for seven successful years, the time had come for an upgrade.

They came to us looking for a refreshed design that was responsive, providing an optimised experience for all screens and devices.

Recognising that people lead busy lives that can make access to healthcare services difficult, our aim was to remove the hassle by making prescriptions easy to order online.


First things first, a switch to Magento to give them the scalability and security as their business continues to grow.

For optimum site speed we deployed our lightweight front end pattern library - which in simple terms equates to making the website as small and fast as possible.

Elasticsearch was added to improve site search - with autocomplete and alternative spelling - and system integration to email people when their routine medication is about to run out with an option to reorder.


  • Improved search using Elasticsearch
  • Extensive 2-way data integration
  • Lightweight front-end pattern library
  • Paypal fast checkout
  • Multiple shipping options
