Be it going that extra mile to ensure a continued commitment to patient care, or trailblazing in the name of innovation, the last 12 months been an extraordinary time for the pharmaceutical industry. And what better way to mark it than with the launch of the 2017 Welsh Pharmacy Awards?
Taking place on 25th May at The Vale Resort, Glamorgan, the gala is set to attract a plethora of the most distinguished and deserving names in the sector. This year, the top categories include Asthma Project of the Year, sponsored by Napp Phamaceuticals.
Whether they work in community pharmacies, hospitals, or clinics, pharmacists are in a pivotal position to contribute to the overall management of asthma. Every year, pharmacists fill prescriptions for asthma medications which remain the principal treatment for the disease. Being qualified to advise patients on all aspects of their medication and offer comprehensive Medicines Use Reviews, ensures the patient is correctly using the medication prescribed.
As well as that, pharmacists have many other opportunities to assist in the management of asthma, and this award is in recognition of the excellent work carried out by pharmacists throughout Wales.
