This year’s Recognition of Excellence (RoE) Awards, organised by our sister publication Training Matters, will feature two new categories – Service Excellence and Pharmacy Champion – taking the number of categories to 11.
Now in its fourth year, the awards have provided a fantastic platform for those that make it to the final, including Leanne Beverley, RoE’s 2014 Pharmacy Technician of the Year and Spotlight Award winner.
“I originally applied to the first RoE Awards as, more than being rewarded for my work, I wanted to motivate other pharmacy staff to rise up and become empowered. By winning the award and being featured in TM, I feel it has enabled me to do this and I can see my younger self in a lot of the entries I now read as a judge for the RoE awards.”
She added: “The recognition of what I have done in my pharmacy career and what I am doing has given me the belief that I actually am good at what I do and I can do more. Hopefully others can see that and become inspired.”
This year’s official charity partner is Pancreatic Cancer Action. “We’re thrilled to have been selected as the charity partner for this fantastic event, which will recognise some of the most hardworking people in community pharmacy in the UK,” says Natasha North, marketing and communications manager.
Pharmacists are encouraged to nominate members of their team who go above and beyond the call of duty to support their customers, pharmacy and community.
Entries close on Friday, March 31, and finalists and their guests will be invited to a celebratory Awards lunch at The Dorchester on Thursday, June 29. To find out how to make a nomination, go to: tmmagazine.co.uk.
