National Pharmacies has celebrated its annual awards, recognising its South Australian, Victorian and NSW employees
The Seaford Pharmacy was awarded the title of Pharmacy of the Year for South Australia, while Burntbridge Pharmacy took out the Vic/NSW title.
Sara Boey, pharmacist in charge at National Pharmacies North Adelaide, was named the Achieving Excellence award winner.
The brand held its South Australian Awards at the Adelaide Convention Centre, and its Victorian awards at Fenix, in Richmond.
The event also proved an opportunity to celebrate long-standing National Pharmacies employees, some of who have worked for the group for up to 40 years.
National Pharmacies Managing Director, Tony Wojciechowski said it is vital to share this special night with every member of the National Pharmacies team, from the Distribution Centre, to stores and the Support Office.
“It was great to see so many of our team enjoying themselves and reflecting on the year they have had and all the positive results they have achieved,” he said.
