Vote now for these 9 stories of pharmacists going ‘above and beyond’

Voting for the category will close on Monday, August 24

C+D readers can now choose their favourite story of a pharmacy professional going the extra mile for their patients.

For the third year running, the C+D Above and Beyond Award, sponsored by Accord, gives readers a chance to vote for their winner themselves, celebrating pharmacists and pharmacy staff going “above and beyond” for their patients, their team and for the sector.

C+D editor Beth Kennedy said: “The Above and Beyond Award is a chance to recognise those who have truly gone beyond the call of duty in the name of patient care.

“These extraordinary individuals give more proof, if any was needed, of community pharmacy's irreplaceable role in looking after the nation's health.”

Readers have until Monday, August 24 to vote for one of the nine stories listed below. The winner will be announced at the C+D Awards ceremony in London on December 14.

Last year’s Above and Beyond Award was won by pharmacist Hassan Riaz. He was praised by readers for his contribution to the community – which saw him helping save the life of a patient with sepsis – during his three years at Horne Street Pharmacy in Halifax, Yorkshire.

Due to COVID-19, the C+D Awards ceremony was postponed to December 14. Despite the challenges faced during the pandemic, pharmacy teams are still keen to celebrate their hard work.

Book your tickets to join us as we pay tribute to pharmacy professionals at the InterContinental O2 Hotel in London on December 14.

Has a member of your pharmacy team gone above and beyond for your patients?

Soon-To-Be Ex-Pharmacist, Superintendent Pharmacist

Personally, I think all of pharmacy has gone above and beyond for many years now.

On Break, Community pharmacist

These are all great stories. They demonstrate exactly why pharmacies need to remain on the high street and have highly trained staff in (not just but including a Pharmacist) to really help people in their community. C+D should also forward this on to Boris to promote the profession further.
