Life Phar­macy drives the green

Pharmacy Daily - - News -

LIFE Phar­macy Group cel­e­brated 60 years of trad­ing when it held its an­nual man­agers con­fer­ence in Forbes NSW where the found­ing phar­macy in the group, Flan­nery’s Phar­macy, orig­i­nally com­menced.

The group, which is headed up by Forbes-bred phar­ma­cist, Michael Flan­nery, in­cludes phar­ma­cies through­out cen­tral west­ern NSW, the ACT and Vic­to­ria.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from all the phar­ma­cies met at the Forbes Golf Club (pic­tured) for a three-day plan­ning and ed­u­ca­tion ses­sion.

“The en­ergy & fo­cus of the group was re­mark­able,” said Flan­nery.

This year’s Life Phar­macy Group store of the year award was hotly con­tested, but ul­ti­mately won by Orana Mall Phar­macy in Dubbo.

With around 40 par­tic­i­pants rep­re­sent­ing the 12 stores within the group, phar­ma­cists in charge and re­tail man­agers came to­gether to share ideas and learn from lead­ing fig­ures within the in­dus­try.

With the mantra to “put the com­mu­nity back into com­mu­nity phar­macy”, all of the Life Phar­macy Group stores are mem­bers of the Phar­macy Cat­a­lyst group which pro­vides pro­fes­sional, re­tail and buy­ing sup­port to like-minded in­de­pen­dent phar­ma­cies.
