Davidsons Chemists in Forfar is celebrating a double win after being recognised at Scotland’s leading pharmacy awards ceremony.

The pharmacy team picked up the awards at the Scottish Pharmacist Awards which were held in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre and hosted by TV personality Dougie Vipond.

Lauren Clarke picked up the Community Pharmacy Service initiative award for managing part of a major study into moving the testing and treatment of hepatitis C into pharmacies.

Evidence collected in the local study showed that better patient outcomes are being achieved and Lauren and her team are now looking forward to helping Tayside become the first place in the UK to eliminate HCV.

Davidsons Chemist stepped back onto the stage to pick up their second award of the evening, winning the Community Pharmacy Team of the Year award. This award recognises pharmacy teams which have collaboration and teamwork at the heart of their business, with staff members who actively encourage and support each other.

Lauren said, “We are all dedicated to providing a first-class service in the pharmacy and we all enjoy what we do, and I think that the patients recognise that.”
