A good pharmacy team is greater than the sum of its parts, with every member using their individual talents to contribute to the group’s overall objective – great patient care. Tell us how your team puts your pharmacy or pharmacies at the heart of the community/ies it serves, how it has overcome obstacles by working together and how it has used individual skills and strengths to create an even more powerful whole – all to the benefit of patients.

Community Pharmacist of the Year

A great community pharmacist has many strings to his or her bow. Whether you are a branch manager, run your own pharmacy, or act as superintendent, you strive to be the best. You are a leader in your field, combining the day-to-day running of your pharmacy or pharmacies with cutting edge practice, be it clinical, business or management. Tell us how you have maximised delivery of your contract, developed clinical services and built links with patients and peers.

With an eye for detail, an ability to multitask and a willingness to go the extra mile, the winner of this award will make everything tick in their pharmacy. Whether you have improved safety or efficiency in the dispensing process, taken on delivery of clinical services or management responsibilities, or mentored colleagues, your entry should demonstrate what you’ve achieved, how you did it, and the measures of success.

Assistants are the frontline of pharmacy and deal with millions of patient requests every year. The winner of this award will be a friendly and familiar face to their customers and an example to their colleagues. Simply doing the job well isn’t enough – the winner needs to go a step further. Whether you have helped recruit patients to your pharmacy’s services, delivered health promotion activities, or forged links with your local community, the C+D Awards is your opportunity to show how important you are to the pharmacy team. Entry can be by nomination as well as by self-entry.
