Following the transition of last year’s event online in response to COVID-19 restrictions, Wales’ pharmacists were once again able to come together in-person and be publicly recognised for their excellence throughout the last 18 months and beyond. The Vale Resort, Glamorgan, was the venue of choice for the 2021 ceremony, with esteemed presenter Andrea Byrne taking the helm as host and commanding the 250-plus audience which encompassed a mix of the sector’s professionals, students, and key industry representatives. Over the course of the evening, the title-holders of the 11 competitive categories were announced, including Business Development of the Year and Independent Community Pharmacist of the Year. Rounding off the proceedings was the announcement of the 2021 Special Recognition Award honouree – which, for the first time, was dedicated to the entire Welsh pharmacy community in tribute to their collaborative efforts, commitment and resilience in the face of unprecedented COVID-19 pressures. Throughout the evening, funds were also raised for this year’s nominated charity, Pharmacist Support.
All the winners will be featured in the forthcoming edition of Welsh Pharmacy Review, while the exclusive pictures can now be viewed below.
