Oberon Pharmacy has been awarded Pharmacy Alliance Independent Pharmacy of the Year award at a group seminar held at Hamilton Island.
Owner Jennifer Stoneman said there were over 700 members Australia wide and to receive this award is outstanding. There was also one award for a branded pharmacy.
"After taking over the pharmacy 10 years ago we have introduced some new services and stock.
"These changes are part of the judging criteria.
"The pharmacy's engagement with the community is part of that criteria.
"We have free blood pressure test, anemia screening, blood pressure and blood sugar tests available to all members for the community.
"Staff have also attended community functions and the Men's Shed with health talks and our walking group is growing daily."
Ms Stoneman said a special mention to Leana Barker who puts in so much hard work to ensure the high standards we aim for are constantly met.
“What a tribute to our wonderful staff.”
