“It is rewarding to have the team’s hard work and commitment to our wonderful customers recognised. We couldn’t have achieved this without the support from our customers, who motivate us to keep striving for excellence,” said Mrs Chiu.

“We have a personal connection with our customers and know them by name and medical history. This allows us to provide exceptional quality of care and level of service, ensuring our customers feel valued and not like just another script number.”

Partner Pharmacy of the Year, Ron Dunford Pharmacy in Parkes, which is co-owned by Marcelle Zacca, delivered outstanding support for local community initiatives, and demonstrated consistently high retail standards and store presentation.

“Parkes has been faced with extreme drought conditions this year, something we at Ron Dunford Pharmacy know can have a devastating effect on the physical and mental health of their local community,” said Marcelle Zacca.

“We have a team that are truly focused on the health and welfare of their local community. Not only are the team great retailers, but in the last 12 months they have helped raise $10,000 to buy water for local farmers affected by drought.”

Non-Branded Pharmacy of the Year, Your Pharmacy in Chinchilla, demonstrated outstanding sales growth and retail performance, while also supporting their local community through both internal and external engagement activities.

“The health of our community is extremely important to us. We work hard to deliver personalised care to each customer and engage as an active member of our community,” said Pharmacy Manager Katie Porteous.

“We’ve teamed up with a local group and personal trainer, RYP Fitness, to host a free inpharmacy Pilates class every Tuesday for local community members.”
