Healthwise Pharmacy in Gaoth Dobhair is celebrating after being shortlisted as a finalist within the Irish Pharmacy Awards 2013.
The Healthwise team will attend the Awards ceremony on May 25th in the Burlington Hotel where the winner of the Business Development of the Year (Chain) Award, sponsored by KRKA, will be announced.
Healthwise Pharmacies have developed a strong brand image with a distinctive logo and a common shop layout. This combined with a major focus on sourcing quality pharmacy related products at competitive prices ensures that Healthwise is seen as offering real value. The key to the Healthwise model remains the offering of quality and personalised healthcare to local communities.
Pharmacists are increasingly the first point of call for the public on health issues and are often consulted before GP’s or hospitals. Many pharmacists now offer more services such as delivery services, blood pressure and cholesterol testing and trusted medical advice free of charge. The Irish Pharmacy Awards reward and distinguish the important role pharmacists play in the medical community.
The second Irish Pharmacy Awards will be held in The Burlington Hotel on Saturday May 25th with over 500 pharmaceutical professionals in attendance. The awards will be celebrating excellence in the Irish Pharmacy industry and will be presented by TV3’s Sybil Mulcahy.
James Cassidy, Supervising Pharmacist, Gaoth Dobhair Healthwise said; “It’s wonderful to be nominated and it’s great to be recognised. Ultimately it’s our staff that makes Healthwise successful and finalising for this award validates the work our staff in Healthwise does. Our approach is all about people. We avoid the high-street and shopping centres as we want to care for the community and stay local.”
