From words spilling with sentiment, to shared celebrations, the heart of the pharmacy sector in Wales once again joined under one roof for the 2022 Welsh Pharmacy Awards.
The annual event represents an integral opportunity for pharmacy professionals from across the diverse disciplines to not only honour the industrious, innovative projects of their peers, but reflect on their own extraordinary work too.
Returning to the Vale Resort, Glamorgan, this year’s ceremony was compered by renowned journalist and presenter Andrea Byrne and attracted a guest list of 300-plus industry giants, spearheading service-providers, and budding student enthusiasts.
During the evening, 12 winners were announced in the competitive categories, which included Locum of the Year, Hospital Pharmacy Team of the Year, and Pharmacy Student Leadership. And in the ceremony’s closing moments, the 2022 Special Recognition title, in association with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society for Wales, was bestowed upon Jenny Pugh-Jones, for her extensive contributions to the sector as Head of Medicines Management at Hywel Dda Health Board and beyond.
Funds were also raised for this year’s nominated charity, LATCH, which helps support the children and their families who are being treated by the Oncology Unit at the Children’s Hospital of Wales.
All the winners will be featured in the forthcoming edition of Welsh Pharmacy Review, while the exclusive pictures can now be viewed online by visiting www.welshpharmacyawards.info.
