In April we received the exciting news that we had been nominated for not one but two awards at the Irish Pharmacy News Awards. To say we were thrilled is an understatement. The first was the GSK Self Care award & the other the McLernons Innovation & Service Development award. To be shortlisted for these prizes was an amazing achievement for our new business.
The award ceremony takes place in the Hilton Double Tree each year. It’s a black tie event & no better time than to get all glammed up for a great night out. The highlight of the pharmacy calendar in Ireland & it never disappoints. There are pharmacies from all over the country. We were hopeful that we might get a prize but with all that competition you never can be sure. Then the announcement was made.
We won the GSK Self Care award. This was for recognition of extra services that we provide in our store. We are constantly running health promotions such as cholesterol testing, men’s health week in June, well being events & coffee mornings. We are so proud to have won. It really gives you a great feeling of achievement. We got wonderful congratulations from our customers, friends & families. A great night was had by all.
