The Pharmapod team have been nominated for the Pharmacist-led team Award at the 2016 Clanwilliam Pharmacist Awards to be held at the Mansion House in Dublin on November 26th.

Now in its 11th year, the awards aim to celebrate pharmacy and raise awareness of the outstanding work being undertaken by pharmacists and their teams across the country. The awards help raise funds for the Pharmacy Benevolent Fund, which supports those who have been associated with Pharmacy and who are now in need of assistance.

Pharmapod has been shortlisted for the Pharmacist-led team Award after being nominated by their peers for their contribution to the sector. An adjudicating panel, comprised of respected pharmacists from various branches of the profession, selected three finalists and a winner in each category. As there are over 1,800 pharmacy team’s nationwide, it is a great honour to be shortlisted in the final three within this category.  This award is sponsored by Abbvie and is given to the pharmacist-led team that demonstrates a “collaborative, creative and innovative, team-based initiative that resulted in health benefit nationally.”

Speaking about the nomination, Leonora O’Brien, CEO of Pharmapod said “We are delighted to have been nominated for this award. The team at Pharmapod are truly dedicated to driving patient safety through innovation and it is a great honour to be recognised for doing what the team are most passionate about. We would like to congratulate the other two finalist teams, The Royal College of Surgeons led by Professor Paul Gallagher and the Allcare Pharmacy Team led by Claire Murphy”.

The winner will be announced at the Clanwillliam Pharmacist  Awards ceremony on Saturday 26th November 2016 in the Mansion House, Dawson Street.
