A life in health

A summary of Apoteket’s Annual and Sustainability Report for 2017.

A life in health

We are not just any pharmacy

Apoteket’s vision is a life in health. Good health is the foundation for achieving important goals in life. You meet us at our 390 pharmacies, located all over Sweden, where we help you with the medicines you need. We also have more than 600 pharmacy representatives to ensure that you receive your medicines even if you live in a rural area.

Your pharmacy needs are met on your schedule

You can purchase medicines and other pharmacy products around the clock at apoteket.se and in our “Mitt apotek” (My Pharmacy) app. You can also chat with us to get valuable advice when you need it, no matter where you are. You can also use the app to contact a doctor for an online doctor visit.

You can trust us and our products

We have extensive knowledge about health and medicine, so you can talk to us about both lifestyle habits and how to take your medicine. You can also get advice about good products. All of our medicines are approved by the Swedish Medical Products Agency, and products that are not medications have completed our extensive quality control procedures. We say no to products with questionable content.

Our customer promise:

With extensive knowledge and the highest quality, we constantly seek new ways to help you. Throughout life.

Services for better health

To make it easier for you to keep track of your medicine, we developed unit-dose packaging, and if you have an uncommon illness, we produce personalised medicines. At selected pharmacies we offer vaccinations and other health services on a walk-in basis. Our pharmacists in the healthcare system help county councils and municipalities provide patients and residents with safe and efficient pharmaceutical treatment.
