Whether you are a medicines counter assistant, delivery driver, dispensing assistant, health champion, pharmacy technician, team leader, non-pharmacist manager, or have any other patient-facing role in the community pharmacy support team, we want to hear from you!

Please note that as much as we value and appreciate the work of community pharmacists, they are not eligible for these awards!

Pharmacy support staff may enter into as many of the following categories as they wish and can enter themselves, nominate other members of the pharmacy support team or nominate their whole team.

And if you are a pharmacist or area manager with fantastic support staff then you can nominate individuals or teams who you feel deserve recognition, too.

Please note, team nominations will only be eligible for the Pharmacy Team of the Year Award and not in any of the other categories.

Entries and nominations are now open, and with a trip to London, including an all-expenses paid awards ceremony for all finalists (Covid-19 permitting, of course), plus fantastic prizes up for grabs, what are you waiting for? Get entering!
