Life Pharmacy drives the green
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.
