New Norfolk pharmacy is tops again

THE New Norfolk Guardian Pharmacy has been named the best in Tasmania for the second year running. The win was announced at the Sigma Pharmacy Assistant Annual Conference in Launceston last weekend. The event provides recognition for Amcal and Guardian stores and the New Norfolk pharmacy will now compete for the title of National Guardian Pharmacy of the Year which will be announced in March 2014.

Co-owner Bel Bird said it was great for the whole team to be recognised for the fantastic work they do. A range of awards was presented at the two-day conference at the Launceston Country Club Casino on September 21-22. Ms Bird was a finalist in the award for pharmacist of the year, while major awards went to two of her staff. These were:

  • Nicole Lawrence, Tasmanian Pharmacy Assistant of the Year (Amcal/Guardian combined).
  • Janelle Maw, Tasmanian Store Manager of the Year (Amcal/Guardian combined).
The nominees were judged on passion, excellence and experience, with an emphasis on community engagement and innovation. Gil and Bel are extremely proud of the whole team and say it is wonderful to have their efforts acknowledged by their peers.
