Alphega Pharmacy Members Take Home Much Deserved Trophies at the C+D Awards for Outstanding Support They Bring to Community Pharmacy


The prestigious Chemist and Druggist Awards finally returned last week to a face-to-face ceremony at the Intercontinental Hotel in London, to recognise and celebrate the very best in the pharmacy industry. We are so delighted for three of our Alphega Pharmacy members who took home well-deserved Awards last Friday, for their outstanding work and vital support they bring to community pharmacy.


Congratulations to Lewis Pharmacy, Exmouth who walked away with the Training and Development Award, for the innovative Let’s Communicate Cancer programme, an e-learning portal to help equip pharmacy professionals with the tools and confidence to help patients on their cancer journey. The team also received a high commendation in the Independent Pharmacy of the Year category.


Dr Jackie Lewis had the following to say on this triumphant achievement: “It’s amazing to win an award and be recognised for all the hard work we put in. After a few difficult years in pharmacy and the current climate to also come out as highly commended in Independent Pharmacy of the Year on top of this is such a morale boost to the team and to share this with them is incredible.  To win the Training and Development award I am blown away. This win is going to be amazing for the publicity of this programme as we are looking at up-skilling the whole of community pharmacy with it. This programme will assist them with the early diagnosis of cancer to help their cancer patients and ensure they get the help they need.”


The ‘Let’s Communicate Cancer’ programme is an engaging e-learning portal for community pharmacy professionals, giving them access to real life case studies, slide shows, bit-sized quizzes and animations in order to give an entire pharmacy team the confidence, skills and knowledge to better help a cancer patients’ journey – from early diagnosis all the way through to treatment. 


Mandeep Mudhar, Head of Alphega Pharmacy UK had the following to say on the recent win: “I’m delighted to see Lewis Pharmacy recognised twice at the C+D awards. Jackie works tirelessly to champion the support and expertise community pharmacists can give to their patients and carers dealing with cancer, and this is on top of the numerous pharmacy services that Lewis Pharmacy offers – the consultation room in Lewis Pharmacy is never quiet!  A massive congratulations to Jackie and the whole team at Lewis Pharmacy.”

A further congratulations goes to two fantastic Alphega Pharmacy members, firstly James Tibbs, AR Pharmacy for picking up the Community Pharmacist of the Year Award, which praises his community focus, strong business acumen, and commitment to patient care. Last but certainly not least, Landys Chemist in North-West London who were awarded with the Independent Pharmacy of the Year Award for their sharp focus on sustainability and plastic free approach to pharmacy.


Alliance Healthcare would like to congratulate our remarkable Alphega Pharmacy members for their outstanding work and commitment to community pharmacy.
