Hurst & Taylor has been part of the Stoke community since the 1950’s.  At this time it was located where the Stoke Bakery is today, supported only one doctor, and even sold cards, magazines and toys. (And we still sell children’s gifts today!)

In 1975, the owners, George Hurst and Alan Taylor renamed the pharmacy as Hurst & Taylor Pharmacy, a name that has become synonymous with pharmacy, prescriptions and good health advice in Stoke and the wider community.  The next major change for Hurst & Taylor Pharmacy came in 1997 when it moved into its current location.  This is a purpose built premises complete with consultation rooms, customer toilet and access lift.

The current owners are Dave Prebble and Helen Chittenden.  Dave has been involved with Hurst & Taylor for the last 29 years and Helen for well over 10 years.  This long standing commitment illustrates their passion for the health and well-being of the Stoke Community.  Hurst & Taylor Pharmacy has developed strong relationships with other health care professionals in Stoke, especially with Stoke Medical Centre providing integrated patient care. Today, Hurst & Taylor Pharmacy is a bustling community pharmacy providing many services.  The staff are all committed to meeting the health care needs of the people of Stoke and the surrounding community.
