Public Health Champion of the Year
New for 2019, this category reflects the UK-wide push to better utilise pharmacies as champions of public health. With the nation facing a raft of ticking healthcare bombs, public health services are at the heart of the NHS, and community pharmacy professionals are central to delivering them.
Whether you’re, for example, a pharmacist who took the ‘healthy living pharmacy’ philosophy to the next level, a counter assistant who never misses an opportunity to promote your smoking cessation service, or any member of a pharmacy team who’s passionate about improving the health of your community – this is the category for you!
This is a category for the individuals who are making public health and healthy living a driving force for what they do, and is open to any member of a community pharmacy team.
Please note that each entry must be specifically tailored to the relevant criteria and the same/similar entry cannot be submitted for two. If you want to celebrate a public health service that your whole pharmacy/business helped deliver, you may want to consider the Health Initiative of the Year Award.
