Canberra’s Capital Chemist Chisholm is the banner’s Pharmacy of the Year for 2019
Capital Chemist Chisholm was awarded Capital Chemist Pharmacy of the Year at the group’s Christmas party over the weekend.
The award was judged on 40 measures of excellence across dispensary management, retail execution, health services and business management.
This is the second year in a row that managing partner Rebecca Young and her team at Capital Chemist Chisholm have won the award, and their third win in the nine years that Ms Young has owned the pharmacy.
Capital Chemist Chisholm is also a finalist for the Pharmacy of the Year 2020 award, to be announced by the Pharmacy Guild at APP conference in March.
“Our team is honoured to have received this award,” says Ms Young. “We’re very lucky to have such an incredible community around us and it’s rewarding to be recognised for the quality care that we provide to ensure the best health outcomes for our customers.
“I’m especially proud of our talented and dedicated team including our pharmacist Vijay Babu, who was a co-runner up for this year’s Capital Chemist Group Team Member of the Year.”
Another Canberra-based pharmacy, Capital Chemist Kingston, was announced as runner up for Pharmacy of the Year.
The store also received the Community Engagement Award sponsored by Westpac, which recognised its significant contribution to the community during 2019.
Capital Chemist Group Team Member of the Year was awarded to Lisa Williamson, POS and Systems Co-Ordinator from Capital Chemist Head Office.
“Capital Chemist has been providing outstanding care to the community for over 40 years,” says Andrew Topp, Group Business Manager.
“These awards present an opportunity for us to recognise the excellence of our stores and team members, many of whom have been with us for a decade or more.
“It’s great to see Capital Chemist Chisholm to not only be recognised internally but also through their nomination for the National Pharmacy of the Year,” says Mr Topp.
“As a group, we celebrate the achievements of each store and individual and look forward to continuing to provide health advice and support to the community in 2020.”
