The aim of the Pharmacy Excellence Awards is for them to be the Awards for the sector and to be an occasion of which the pharmacists, owners and managers and key suppliers to the sector can be proud and really want to be a part. Even so, we know that there may be omissions – in the Categories, for instance – and we are happy to accept constructive criticism that will enable us to make the Awards even more representative of this vibrant sector in subsequent years.

The Category list is not overburdened with wordy criteria. We believe in being less prescriptive, preferring you to tell your story in your own way. All we ask is that you use the basic template of headings in your submission document, which you can find on the Useful Advice page. This helps the judges when comparing entries and it helps the process of marking, ensuring allocations of marks to each aspect of a submission are awarded with consistency.

We look forward to receiving your entries and wish you well with your submissions. Don’t forget: the Awards are FREE TO ENTER for all pharmacies and LPCs, with suppliers to the sector paying modest entry fees.

Key dates (assuming no effect from pandemic):

January 1: Call for entries commences

May 31: Extended closing date for entries

June/July: Judging

June 30: Deadline for announcement of short-listed Finalists

October: Awards presentation. A decision on date and venue will be made once Government and Public Health guidelines are clear.



Time is always precious and sometimes writing an entry submission is one of those jobs put off until the last moment. For a helping hand to write your awards entries contact:
