Bundaberg Discount Drug Store has won the major award for national pharmacy of the year at the network's 2020 annual conference.
Bundaberg Discount Drug Store has previously been awarded Queensland Pharmacy of the Year at Sigma’s Pharmacy Assistants annual conference.
The citation for the national award said: “Bundaberg have a strong business foundation created through the team’s dedication to driving service excellence. The team embrace all new initiatives and are proactive in their approach towards innovation, retail execution and their goal to be the destination for both professional services and health/wellbeing.”
Discount Drug Stores celebrated their 13th annual national conference a little differently this year due to COVID-19, but nonetheless acknowledged and praised the achievements of its franchise partners.
For the first time presented via video link, the virtual awards presentation provided franchise partners, pharmacists and pharmacy teams the opportunity to connect and celebrate their peers who have gone the extra mile in a year that has delivered more challenges than most.
Head of Discount Drug Stores, Patrick Stoll, praised “the incredible achievements” of the DDS pharmacy teams and said he looks forward to seeing all the award recipients continue to grow.
“This year has been tougher than most for everyone,” Mr Stoll said.
“Our franchise partners, pharmacists and pharmacy teams have all been going the extra mile, even before the pandemic, to ensure their local communities get the best care and this is why it is so important to acknowledge all their hard work.
“We are proud of all our award winners and congratulate them on their achievements and deserving wins.
“We look forward to seeing all recipients continue to embody Discount Drug Stores’ values and we look forward to seeing them continue to grow with the brand.”
