The phar­ma­cist – a rel­e­vant part­ner in mov­ing Ja for­ward

Jamaica Gleaner - - MESSAGE - ANDREW HOL­NESS, ON, MP Prime Min­is­ter

OUR PHAR­MA­CISTS play a vi­tal role in help­ing our peo­ple achieve op­ti­mal health by pro­vid­ing a wide range of ser­vices to pa­tients, physi­cians, nurses and other in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als.

This Gov­ern­ment be­lieves whole­heart­edly that a healthy labour force is paramount to driv­ing Ja­maica’s pro­duc­tiv­ity and economic de­vel­op­ment. Your work in dis­pens­ing med­i­ca­tion and of­fer­ing valu­able ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion on var­i­ous medicines is im­por­tant to fa­cil­i­tate re­cov­ery and well-be­ing.

Against this back­ground, I am pleased to join the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal So­ci­ety of Ja­maica in hon­our­ing our self­less and dili­gent phar­ma­cists dur­ing the week of Novem­ber 20-26.

The theme, ‘Phar­ma­cist: Ad­vanc­ing Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals For a Health­ier You’, sig­ni­fies your commitment to sup­port­ing the ad­vance­ment of our na­tion and its peo­ple. For this rea­son, we view you as rel­e­vant part­ners in mov­ing Ja­maica for­ward on its growth tra­jec­tory.

The Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal So­ci­ety of Ja­maica must be com­mended for their sig­nif­i­cant role in the de­vel­op­ment of the pro­fes­sion through use­ful train­ing and in­cen­tives which en­cour­age sus­tained ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness in the field.

To the phar­ma­cists who will be recog­nised at the spe­cial awards ban­quet, I laud you for your pro­fes­sion­al­ism and ded­i­ca­tion in ex­e­cut­ing your daily tasks. May you con­tinue to give dis­tin­guished ser­vice to your coun­try and its peo­ple.

I wish for all a very suc­cess­ful week of cel­e­bra­tions as you con­tinue to con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of our na­tion.

HOL­NESS
