Davidsons Chemist in Bridge of Earn has walked away with two major accolades at this year’s annual Scottish Pharmacist Awards at Edinburgh’s International Conference Centre.
The Bridge of Earn pharmacy picked up the Pharmacy of the Year Award as well as the Working in Partnership Award for its work around supporting the transfer of patients when the Bridge of Earn Medical Practice closed.
Last year Davidsons Chemist in Bridge of Earn was very involved in transferring 3500 patients from the local GP surgery to other practices in the vicinity. The pharmacy worked collaboratively with other healthcare professionals to ensure that the transfer was as smooth as possible for the patients.
The judges praised the work of Davidsons Chemist, stating it ‘was an exceptional project undertaken in exceptional circumstances. The response from the pharmacy team was outstanding. Key to their success was the existing goodwill and respect for the pharmacy, leadership by the branch manager and collaboration with a range of stakeholders within and beyond the profession.’
