Who is Charac?

Charac derives from ‘Charka’, the inventor of Ayurveda medicine in India. When we were looking to register a company name, we spent a lot of time carefully researching and looked to the South Asian community for inspiration, given many of the community pharmacies in the UK are run within these communities.

We eventually landed on naming the company Charac, and we’ve been known as this ever since. At Charac, we believe that a holistic approach and rapid digitisation will help independent pharmacies safeguard their businesses and create new revenue sources amid pressure from the NHS. Our platform enables pharmacies to digitise their current processes by providing repeat prescription and consultations via phone, video, desktop, or mobile.
