WHAT IS THE JUDGING PROCESS?

C+D selects more than 20 judges, designed to reflect the breadth of community pharmacy, and the wider healthcare sector. Each individual is asked to judge between one and three categories, with a different combination of between two and four individuals judging each category. To ensure the process is fair and unbiased, the judging is done independently – with no judge informed who else is judging their categories, or who has won their categories.

CAN I SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE ENTRY?

Yes. The only exception is Community Pharmacist of the Year and Pharmacy Manager of the Year, where the same individual can’t enter both. While in every other category your business is able to enter as many as are relevant, please note you can’t submit the same or similar entries for more than one category. Read the ‘who can enter?’ section for each category to help you decide which is most suitable for you.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I ENTER?
You will receive an email to confirm that your entry has been submitted correctly. If you do not receive this, please contact Natalia Kay.
