“We have had a brilliant response from patients and other health professionals such as GPs, demonstrating how valued the profession is,” says Neal Patel, head of corporate communications at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
To be in with a chance of winning the accolade, nominated pharmacists still need to enter themselves into the award.
“It’s still not too late to enter if you have been nominated. I would encourage nominated pharmacists and all other pharmacists across Great Britain to take time to fill in the short entry form. This really is a fantastic way for us to celebrate our profession and share with the public the many ways pharmacists support them,” adds Patel.
