Service development is the structure that benefits a whole chain of pharmacies. The system, device or tool that makes a real difference to the running of multiple pharmacies and their patients.
Applications are sought from those demonstrating clear commitment to the enhancement of community pharmacy and the ability to overcome challenges in pursuit of goals.
Judges will be looking for:
- Models or systems that improve pharmacists’ impact on patient care, safety and income as well as their professional development.
- The development of systems or tools for the use in pharmacy which will clearly impact patient care and continue to act as templates for others in the industry to follow.
- The measurable benefits from a project or initiative – including financial data where possible. These can include statistics that will demonstrate added value, profits, customer satisfaction, increased productivity or any other benefit relevant to the project.
Who can Enter?
This category is open to all multiple pharmacies. Applications can be through a third-party nomination or through individual applications.
All entries will be judged by an independent panel of experts.
The finalists will be announced in the May 2018 edition of Irish Pharmacy News.
