Pharmacy Daily - - News -

CAN­BERRA’S Cap­i­tal Chemist Chisholm has been named the top Phar­macy of the Year for the Cap­i­tal Chemist group.

The ac­co­lade was awarded last week­end at the Mu­seum of Aus­tralian Democ­racy in Old Par­lia­ment House, Can­berra, with about 350 guests in at­ten­dance.

The Phar­macy of the Year com­pe­ti­tion fo­cuses on a to­tal of 39 pa­ram­e­ters which are judged as rep­re­sen­ta­tive of suc­cess, such as growth, ser­vices devel­op­ment and im­ple­men­ta­tion, demon­stra­tion of core val­ues, cus­tomer ser­vice and phar­ma­cist ac­cess.

The award was pre­sented by Ge­off Weir, Se­nior Re­la­tion­ship Man­ager at West­pac which is a long-term trad­ing part­ner of the group and the award’s ma­jor spon­sor.

Cap­i­tal Chemist Chisholm Man­ag­ing Part­ner Re­becca Young said the award was the cul­mi­na­tion of years of hard work and ded­i­ca­tion, ac­knowl­edg­ing the ef­forts of her staff and the sup­port given by the group’s head of­fice.

“We don’t op­er­ate in iso­la­tion

- we work as part of the Cap­i­tal Chemist group and this award shows ex­actly what is pos­si­ble.”

Run­ner up for the Phar­macy of the Year award was Cap­i­tal Chemist Gar­ran, while the Team Mem­ber of the Year award went to Kim O’Dea, re­tail man­ager of Cap­i­tal Chemist South­lands.

As well as her day job, O’Dea was hailed for her tire­less be­hind the scenes work at many Cap­i­tal Chemist Com­mu­nity Pro­gram events - and her son is the “body” of the Cap­i­tal Chemist mas­cot, Bil­lie Bilby.

Re­becca Porter from Cap­i­tal Chemist Cal­well was the run­ner up for Team Mem­ber of the Year.

Cap­i­tal Chemist also has an ex­ten­sive char­ity and com­mu­nity sup­port pro­gram in the ACT, with Cap­i­tal Chemist South­lands tak­ing out the 2018 Com­mu­nity En­gage­ment Award.

Cap­i­tal Chemist Group Busi­ness Man­ager, An­drew Topp, paid trib­ute to all the win­ners, say­ing they had shown a ded­i­ca­tion to the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s model of com­mu­nity en­gage­ment, ser­vice and ad­vice, & ex­cel­lence in pro­fes­sional ser­vices.
