The nationwide search for Ireland’s Pharmaton People’s Pharmacist of the Year 2019 is now under way.
As one of the most important accolades in the Irish Pharmacy Awards, this award appeals to both industry and community to select the pharmacist they feel brings the most to their community and its patients. This award showcases how pharmacists connect with and build relationships within their local community through the treatment and experiences of patients.
This award category recognises the pharmacist’s commitment not only to their role in ensuring patient safety, but also to the training and education they may provide to their pharmacy staff. The knowledge and dedication of a community pharmacist can bridge the gap between suppliers and pharmacy staff on the front line.
This is the only award at the IPAs in which the finalists are nominated by and then voted for by the general public, ensuring that the local community is involved in the build-up to the awards themselves. Members of the public can nominate their chosen pharmacist, be either working in an independent or multiple store, or if they are working as a locum or superintendent in any pharmacy in Ireland.
To nominate a chosen pharmacist, people must send their name, pharmacy and supporting statement to IPN via one of the following methods:
Email: Nominate via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Facebook: Nominate via messaging us on our Facebook page
Phone: Nominate via phone on 087 413 0107
Nominations for this award will run for 2 weeks.
NOMINATIONS CLOSE APRIL 19th 2019.
Good luck everyone!
