The Vale Resort, Glamorgan


As the entry process for the 2021 Welsh Pharmacy Awards officially opens, we can’t wait to honour the exceptional members of the sector.

2020 was an extraordinarily testing year for us all, and COVID-19’s impact will continue to carve its legacy for long to come. However, through the darkness and devastation brought on by the pandemic, the courage of the profession has shone brightly on us all. Although it will be impossible to fully express the scale of our gratitude to you all, it’s never been more important to honour your work and sacrifices – which is why we’re delighted to announce the launch of this year’s Welsh Pharmacy Awards.

The 2021 ceremony will be taking place on Wednesday 13th October at The Vale Resort, Glamorgan. With a wide selection of categories available – and presented over the following pages – we encourage you to put your expertise forward and encourage your peers.

Good luck
