Hard Work Pays Off as Gatley Businessman Scoops Award


A Gatley businessman has landed a prestigious business award and been named finalist for two others less than a year after starting up, and has put his success down to hard work – and his dad
Khalid Ahmed opened the area’s first online pharmacy back in September 2015 and has seen an encouraging response. Your UK Pharmacy operates a 24 hour service providing a prescription and advice service for customers via text, Skype, phone and email.
The round the clock nature of the business means that success may have come quick but it hasn’t come easy.
“Being a 24 hour pharmacy is not easy, we promise to be there within the space of an hour, often less. Even though we’re online we’re interacting with the patients all the time” Khalid said.
Recognition has come in the form of two separate awards- the E3 Business Awards where Khalid was a finalist in both the Online Business of the Year and New Business Start-Up of the Year and The Asian Business Awards where Khalid received the gong for Male Businessman of the Year.
“It was a surprise, but all the hard work has paid off” He said. The award was presented to him by the Chinese Consulate and he dedicated it to his father who joined him on stage for the presentation.
So what next for Your UK Pharmacy and Khalid?
“I’m looking to expand and hoping to recruit agents around the UK in the next nine months” he explained.
