A pharmacy in Northwood has been honoured with a prestigious national business award.
Sharmans Pharmacy was awarded the Pharmacy Business of the Year Award 2020 in a virtual ceremony on Thursday, January 21.
The awards are in their 20th year with the highest accolade of the Pharmacy Business Award going to the community pharmacy that has excelled in every aspect of their pharmacy.
Rikin Patel, superintendent pharmacist at Sharmans Pharmacy, said the award was an amazing achievement and tribute to all the hard work the pharmacy team put in over the last year.
He said: “It feels absolutely amazing, it’s especially important to us because all of the hard work and hours the team have put in during the pandemic.
“It’s been a very difficult year for community pharmacies in general, they have busier than usual and the only face to face care provided locally.”
Sharmans Pharmacy was described as “a model for the future of community pharmacy” and was recognised for its wide range of services provided and its recent refurbishment which has helped to maximise patient experience.
The pharmacy will also act as a COVID-19 vaccination centre on behalf of the NHS from Thursday, on an appointment only basis via the National Booking Service.
This means that residents must still wait for their letter via the National Booking Service, rather than just turning up at the pharmacy.
