John Bell & Croyden is a leading specialist provider of pharmaceutical and healthcare services.
With an innovative approach and a wealth of experience, we offer an extensive range of service and supply solutions, tailored to meet your business needs. As well as servicing hospitals, clinics, health professionals and wholesalers, we also supply a broad range of products for clinical trials and comparative studies. Our services include contract services for drug supply, Pharmacist and Technician Support, full stock management and occupational health services
for non-clinical businesses.
We are proud of our close association with the medical and pharmaceutical professions and our long history of supply of thousands of medical, pharmaceutical and wellbeing products.
As the Royal Warrant Holding Pharmacist to Her Majesty the Queen, we have immediate on-site access to professional pharmaceutical expertise and advice, and we are immersed in London’s world-renowned Harley Street Medical Area. Our team has long been globally recognised as expert in sourcing almost any product, and in working closely with our customers to deliver the service in the way they need.
John Bell & Croyden is part of McKesson UK, alongside brands such as AAH Pharmaceuticals, LloydsPharmacy, MASTA Travel Health and many others.
Whilst remaining independently run, it is backed by the buying power of one of the UK’s leading pharmaceutical wholesalers, and McKesson’s global presence, our in-depth knowledge of local licensing and regulations worldwide ensures we offer a reliable and ethical service wherever we supply.
Additionally, our independence within this framework enables us to offer your business a truly personal service. We have experience of servicing major contracts as well as smaller orders, yet all receive the same high level of service by our team. As we are not restricted to single sources of supply, we can offer consolidated delivery of products from different manufacturers to simplify your supply chain and bring the greatest level of cost-efficiency to your orders and effective management of your healthcare business.
We supply both licenced and unlicenced medicines across the UK at competitive prices, with the reassurance of the AAH network behind us to give us the most robust supply chain and help reduce out of stocks. Most items can be supplied the next working day or orders can be consolidated into scheduled deliveries as required.

Ensuring safe arrival
Once your order has been confirmed, we can ship it direct using one of our approved couriers, or via your own shipping agents if preferred. Our despatch department will ensure your order is expertly packed, taking into account any special handling requirements.

We use the latest ground-breaking technologies to control and monitor the temperature of all our stored medicines before and during their journey to patients around the world.
For customers, this means they can be assured that the products we send them will arrive in optimal condition and without delay. We fully understand that there is a patient waiting for the medication and so we work hard to safeguard the integrity of the product and ensure its prompt arrival.
