In a year of uncertainty – and against conditions unforeseen and pressures unprecedented – the members of our health service have showcased their commitment, selflessness and courage more than ever before.
While ideally, we would pay tribute to the positive impact which the members of the sector have forged in person, in response to updated COVID-19 guidelines this year’s Scottish Pharmacy Awards ceremony recently transitioned online.
The culmination of the hotly-contested process took place on a dedicated website – www.scottishpharmacyawards.info – on Wednesday 25th November in which key healthcare representatives and award sponsors submitted videos and special winner announcements.
Keeping apace with Scotland’s ever-evolving delivery of healthcare services, 10 awards were up for grabs. With the categories spanning the different corners of the profession, the titles ranged from Hospital Pharmacy Team of the Year, to Respiratory Project of the Year and Student Leadership.
Rounding off the online reveal, the recipient of the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award was announced – a recently-retired Dr Rose Marie Parr, former Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for Scotland, in recognition of her tremendous contributions to pharmacy in Scotland and beyond.
All the winners and their stories of success will be featured in the forthcoming edition of Scottish Pharmacy Review, while the exclusive videos can now be viewed online by visiting ww.scottishpharmacyawards.info.
