Phar­macy wins awards

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Ai­den Boy­ham

Waikiki Dis­count Drug Store has en­joyed suc­cess through­out 2017, with the phar­macy win­ning four ma­jor awards over the course of the year.

The hard­work­ing team, led by own­ers Branka Jano­se­vic and Nerida Gard­ner, col­lected the Dis­count Drug Store phar­macy of the year award as they fended off competition from 144 other stores around Aus­tralia.

They also took out na­tional mar­ket­ing and com­pli­ance awards this year, with dis­pen­sary phar­macy as­sis­tant Penny Caine also tast­ing suc­cess af­ter she was named the phar­macy as­sis­tant of the year.

Ms Jano­se­vic said it was fan­tas­tic to see the 24 staff mem­bers at Waikiki Dis­count Drug Store re­ceive recog­ni­tion for all their hard work.

“I be­lieve this is a re­ally good team,” Ms Jano­se­vic said.

“It’s a re­ally com­pact team, ev­ery­one has their own re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, they re­ally help each other and ob­vi­ously they are get­ting ex­cel­lent re­sults.

“It’s very nice to get the recog­ni­tion for the hard work.”

Waikiki Dis­count Drug Store has been serv­ing the com­mu­nity since 2006 and has won 12 awards over the years. In ad­di­tion to op­er­at­ing an award­win­ning phar­macy, Waikiki Dis­count Drug Store also holds “walk and talk” ses­sions with se­niors at the Au­tumn Cen­tre in Rock­ing­ham.

With a re­cent ren­o­va­tion and re­fit of the dis­pen­sary at the phar­macy, Ms Jano­se­vic said the team was fo­cused on con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide an award-win­ning ser­vice in 2018.
