Meet the Team

There has been a pharmacy on this site in the Hillmorton shops for over 50 years, but Pharmacist Simon Murphy and his wife Georgina have owned Hillmorton Pharmacy since 2009.

Their goal is to provide professional pharmacy services in a warm and friendly environment.

In 2006 he moved to Ireland with his family and had 18 months in South West Cork before returning to Christchurch. Simon and George have three teenage children who keep them busy. Simon is a keen golfer and enjoys following the children's sporting endeavors. Hillmorton Pharmacy is the first pharmacy that Simon and George have owned, and in 2019 they celebrated 10 years in business.
