Narrogin Observer - - News - Michael Traill

Nar­ro­gin’s phar­ma­cies took home pres­ti­gious award ti­tles from the re­cent Phar­macy As­sis­tants An­nual Con­fer­ence.

Guardian Phar­macy Nar­ro­gin was named the State’s 2018 Guardian Phar­macy of the Year award, and staff mem­ber Sarah Oats took out the Phar­macy As­sis­tant of the Year award.

Guardian Phar­macy Nar­ro­gin owner Nik Pa­tel said staff were proud to be nom­i­nated as fi­nal­ist in four dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories.

“I be­lieve we work very well as a team and en­deav­our to pro­vide ex­cep­tional ser­vice and care to our com­mu­nity,” he said.

“It has most cer­tainly boosted staff morale.”

Mr Pa­tel also con­grat­u­lated Sarah Oats for be­ing recog­nised on the night. “Sarah is gen­uinely a hard­work­ing in­di­vid­ual, and this award has been a great recog­ni­tion of the ex­cep­tional duty of care that she pro­vides to our cus­tomer,” he said.

Nar­ro­gin Am­cal Chemist took home the Com­mu­nity En­gage­ment Phar­macy of the Year award.

Manag­ing part­ner Ge­off Page said the of­fi­cial recog­ni­tion of the ti­tle was well de­served for the ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion of his team.

“(We’ll) con­tin­u­ally strive to be the heart of our small ru­ral com­mu­nity by fo­cus­ing on the real and mean­ing­ful re­la­tion­ships we have with them,” he said. “We’ll al­ways carry on do­ing what we do, ir­re­spec­tive of awards, the ef­fect on the team is pal­pa­ble. Rais­ing pride for what they do, al­low­ing them to walk tall, and rein­vig­o­rat­ing their en­ergy and ded­i­ca­tion, price­less.”
