Pharmacy Alliance awards

Pharmacies in Victoria, Western Australia and NSW have collected top honours at the inaugural Pharmacy Alliance awards, presented at the group’s annual members’ forum gala dinner on Hamilton Island in Queensland last week.

Victoria’s Nihill Pharmacy was named Partner Pharmacy of the Year, with Woodvale Pharmacy in Perth honoured as Alliance Pharmacy of the Year, and Oberon Pharmacy in the NSW Central Tablelands collecting the Member Pharmacy of the Year award.

“There are so many outstanding member pharmacies in our 600-plus strong network that it was a very difficult task, but we were able to narrow the field down to one very worthy winner in each of our three pharmacy categories,” Pharmacy Alliance CEO Darren Dye said.

Member pharmacy winners were selected based on their exceptional Pharmacy Alliance program support, including generic, private label, OTC branded ranges and marketing execution. Also considered was their influence on community health outcomes in line with the Pharmacy Alliance ‘local health matters’ vision.

The Supplier of the Year, Bioceuticals, was selected based on outstanding performance in achieving shared outcomes for Pharmacy Alliance members.

“I am really pleased to be able to recognise the efforts of three great pharmacies who have a strong commitment to delivering great health outcomes to their community and am also pleased to recognise one of our supplier partners, BioCeuticals, who have been a great supporter of our members for a number of years,” Pharmacy Alliance Managing Director Simon Reynolds said.
