The relocation of a Cambuslang pharmacy to larger premises will give the area a boost, according to the local community council.
Dickson Chemists has now opened a new pharmacy at 156 Main Street in the city, after having been in smaller premises in the same area.
The family business recently started rolling out hyperbaric therapy in some of its outlets, which is the same recovery tool used by Cristiano Ronaldo and Justin Bieber.

The new store was opened by John Bachtler, the president of the Cambuslang Community Council (CCC).
He said Lanarkshire Live “I was very pleased to have been invited to cut the ribbon for the official opening of Dickson’s Pharmacy and to meet Stephen Dickson and the staff team.
“CCC is delighted that Dickson’s investment in Cambuslang has enabled the two pharmacies the community relies on to continue to provide a truly important service.
“Dickson’s is a family business, which has been providing pharmacy services to the area for 40 years and whose owners live locally and now have a commitment to the city.
“During the inauguration, I very much appreciated the opportunity to see the operation of the ‘back office’, in particular the new robotic equipment for the preparation of the blisters.
“I’ve also heard of other innovations like automated dispensing and a hyperbaric oxygen tank in Dickson’s pharmacies that I’m sure will be greatly appreciated by patients.”
Stephen Dickson, Pharmacist Superintendent of Pharmacy, said: “We are delighted to be able to ask someone from the local community council to officially open our newly refurbished and relocated shop in Cambuslang.
