Three outstanding pharmacies have been named at Pharmacy Alliance’s inaugural awards
Pharmacy Alliance presented the winners of the inaugural Pharmacy of The Year Awards and Supplier of The Year Awards at the annual Members’ Forum Gala Dinner on Hamilton Island.
Nhill Pharmacy in Victoria earned the title of Partner Pharmacy of the Year 2018.
Alliance described Nhill Pharmacy is one of its top-performing partner pharmacies, but said it was the store’s “amazing” local community engagement and focus on health outcomes through social media and customer events that set it apart.
Woodvale Pharmacy (pictured above) in Western Australia was named Alliance Pharmacy of the Year 2018.
Woodvale Pharmacy has seen growth in its pharmacy by implementing the full suite of Pharmacy Alliance programs and services, the organisation says.
“The pharmacy team has a genuine passion for continuous improvement which they demonstrate through an exceptional store environment, retail program execution and a genuine care for their customers.”
Oberon Pharmacy (pictured left) in NSW was named Member Pharmacy of the Year 2018.
Located in the high country of the Blue Mountains, Oberon Pharmacy implements Pharmacy Alliance member programs and initiatives at a high standard, says Pharmacy Alliance, which has allowed it to have a strong community focus.
BioCeuticals was named Supplier of the Year 2018. BioCeuticals has partnered with Pharmacy Alliance to support our pharmacist-led retail initiatives. Pharmacy Alliance members have embraced the BioCeuticals practitioner-only range as it supports them to deliver a personalised solution to their customers, says the organisation.
“There are so many outstanding member pharmacies in our 600-plus strong network that it was a very difficult task, but we were able to narrow the field down to one very worthy winner in each of our three pharmacy categories,” said Pharmacy Alliance CEO Darren Dye.
This year’s member pharmacy winners were selected based on their Pharmacy Alliance program support including generic, private label, OTC branded ranges and marketing execution along with their influence on community health outcomes in line with the ‘Local health matters’ vision.
The Supplier of the Year was selected based on outstanding performance in achieving shared outcomes for members.
“Our programs are designed to help our 600-plus independent pharmacies have the right product range and services to suit their local community’s health needs as well as provide the support to engage and train their pharmacy teams,” said Simon Reynolds, Managing Director Pharmacy Alliance.
“I am really pleased to be able to recognise the efforts of three great pharmacies who have a strong commitment to delivering great health outcomes to their community; and am also pleased to recognise one of our supplier partners, BioCeuticals who have been a great supporter of our members for a number of years.”
