Pharmacies are stable with an NCSI score of 78, though individual company results vary widely. Customers still prefer smaller, local pharmacies (80) to any of the larger retailers, but a 3% improvement pushes Superdrug to the lead at 78. Boots follows close behind, unchanged at 76. Following a takeover by Bestway Group last year, the Co-operative Pharmacy tumbles 5% to 73. Lloyds Pharmacy also posts an NCSI score of 73, down 4% for the year.
The National Customer Satisfaction Index UK (NCSI-UK) is an economic indicator of customer evaluations of the quality of products and services available to household consumers in the United Kingdom. NCSI is produced by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), the gold-standard of global customer satisfaction indices. This methodology was developed at the University of Michigan and has been adopted worldwide as a leading macro- and micro-level indicator by universities, governments and countries including the United States (ACSI), the United Kingdom, Sweden, Singapore, Korea, Turkey, South Africa, Mexico, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Indonesia and Barbados.
