The 2017 Pharmacy Guild of Australia/ Maxigesic Pharmacy Assistant of the Year Award has received more nominations than ever before
Self-nominations are still open until Friday 16 June.
Pharmacy Guild of Australia National President, George Tambassis, says it is “terrific” to see more than 600 nominations so far—and counting.
“It’s great to see so many owners, pharmacists, managers, colleagues and customers recognise the work of dedicated pharmacy assistants throughout Australia,” Mr Tambassis says.
He encouraged pharmacy assistants to self-nominate before the 16th.
General Manager (Aust) of Award sponsor AFT Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd, Calvin MacKenzie says that the organisation is pleased to partner with the Guild to recognise and reward pharmacy assistants.
“Pharmacy assistants provide a vital link in our healthcare system, providing advice, care and support when we are at our most vulnerable.
“It’s important to acknowledge the vital role pharmacy assistants play within community pharmacies. This Award presents an opportunity to both celebrate and further develop their careers,” Mr MacKenzie says.
Nominations are open online at www.pharmacyassistants.com/nominate-now. Successful nominees will be asked to attend a state-based workshop, where they can showcase their passion, knowledge and leadership skills while learning from their peers and the profession.
The national winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize and a Guild Training course, among other great rewards. State finalists and winners will also be eligible for prizes. For more information, visit: www.pharmacyassistants.com/paty
