2019 Pharmacy of the month winners

Congratulations Connie!

Connie Sharrock, Medicines Safety Officer from Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, has been nominated by her colleagues for setting up safety champions throughout the trust. She is highly motivated to improve the way staff review and investigate all medication incidents. This in turn has promoted a “new” ethos of a “near miss is a gift” Connie has also introduced an initiative in the department called “Connie’s Gold Stars” in which she has encouraged her pharmacy staff to report interventions and near misses which have prevented harm to our patients.  

Great work Connie! We love the gold star idea! 

Congratulations Sharon!

Sharon Daly, Specialist Stroke Pharmacist from Southern Health and Social Care Trust has been nominated by her colleagues as she is an exceptional pharmacist who works in the busiest, most complex ward in the Trust. She has worked seamlessly with the MDT to establish a fantastic pharmacy team with our junior pharmacist and technician colleagues to maximise care in the hospital and on discharge for vulnerable adults. Her research on medicines optimisation at the interfaces of care was pivotal in gaining funding for more pharmacist prescribers in the Trust and for increased IT provision for pharmacists.  

We love the collaborative work Sharon well done! 

Congratulations Samantha!

Samantha Quaye, Lead Pharmacy Technician from Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has been nominated by her colleagues for being a constant advocate for the Pharmacy Technician profession. They stated Samantha lives, breathes and probably sleeps a strong vision for how Pharmacy Technicians can and should be developed in order to establish their true role in the workplace (in all settings). She is not afraid to stand up and be counted on this issue and can construct a well-balanced, constructive and most importantly polite argument for her vision. She achieves what she does without trying to undermine or belittle others. 

Well done Samantha - you're a true Pharmacy Technician champion

Congratulations Maisie!

Maisie Hart, Pharmacy Technician from Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust has been nominated for her hard work and dedicated focus to patient outcomes. Maisie constantly goes above and beyond to ensure the patient is safe. Quite recently she picked up where a patient had been taking a double dose of Lithium due to a community dispensing error leading to the patient being admitted. She has and will continue to develop into being an amazing clinical pharmacy technician. 

Excellent eye for the dispensing error Maisie! You truly have gone above and beyond to implement patient safety.
