A PHARMACIST from Rubery has shown she has all the right chemistry with the customers after being given a prestigious national Recognition of Excellence award.
Myra Gauntlett, the area lead and accuracy checking technician from Knights Pharmacy, New Road, came on top for the Team Leader Award.
She was praised for her first class leadership, communication skills and willingness to go the extra mile for her team and customers.
Myra’s approach is to focus on the individual and work with each team member, listening to them personally, building relationships and offering training for them to grow and flourish.
She has now built a strong team around her which offers customers the best possible service.
Myra received a ‘highly commended’ accolade at the RoE Awards in 2014 and has now took the first prize in what is a very competetive category.
Finalists like Myra would usually be invited to a glamorous lunch event in central London to receive their awards but this has not been possible because of the pandemic so the trophies, certificates, posters and bespoke hampers and bottles of champagne for the highly commended will be delivered directly to the pharmacies.
Editor of Training Matters and awards host Helena Beer said: “It’s been a real pleasure to run these awards again in 2020.
“This year we had a record number of entries, all with amazing stories to tell.
“Our finalists represent the best of community pharmacy and I’m thrilled to be able to reward these individuals for their hard work, dedication and passion for helping the people in their communities live better and healthier lives.
“They really do make a difference, especially during such worrying times as we’re currently living through, and they deserve to be celebrated and recognised for all that they do.”
