The Independent Pharmacy Awards, run in association with Independent Community Pharmacist magazine, once again shone a light on the brilliant work of community pharmacy teams.
 
The event drew an audience of MPs, leading figures within community pharmacy and pharmaceutical industry executives who heard about the innovative work going on within the sector.

Sobha Kandel, who runs Woolwich Late Night Pharmacy won the Innovation Award after her hotel COVID - 19 quarantine service caught the judges’ eye.

She has an exclusive contract in her area for the service and works with the GP practice.
