Pharmacy Daily - - News -

LAST week­end’s Phar­macy As­sis­tant Na­tional Con­fer­ence on the Gold Coast saw Alice Van­der­pol from Moama Vil­lage Phar­macy in NSW named as the 2018 Phar­macy Guild of Aus­tralia/Max­i­gesic Phar­macy As­sis­tant of the Year.

More than 750 nom­i­na­tions were re­ceived this year, with Van­der­pol say­ing she was proud to have been cho­sen as the over­all win­ner.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to em­brac­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties in the next 12 months and en­cour­ag­ing phar­macy as­sis­tants from all over Aus­tralia to not only value the work we do, but also the con­tri­bu­tion we make to com­mu­nity phar­macy.

“It’s im­por­tant and we make a dif­fer­ence,” she said.

Phar­macy Guild of Aus­tralia Group Ex­ec­u­tive Phar­macy Trans­for­ma­tion and Na­tional Judge, Colm Maguire, said the award aimed to high­light the key role of phar­macy as­sis­tants.

“The work of phar­macy as­sis­tants is in­te­gral in en­sur­ing that com­mu­nity phar­ma­cies are pa­tient­fo­cused health care providers and suc­cess­ful, com­mu­nity-minded small busi­nesses,” he said.

The award was spon­sored by AFT Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, with GM Calvin Macken­zie com­mend­ing all par­tic­i­pants for their achieve­ments.

Van­der­pol is pic­tured with Phar­macy Guild Na­tional Pres­i­dent, Ge­orge Tam­bassis and Calvin Macken­zie of AFT Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals.
