The awards would not, of course, be possible if it wasn’t for the support from our event partners. Without their continued support, these awards simply wouldn’t be recognised as the major pharmacy event of the year.

Numark is delighted to support the Scottish Pharmacy Awards once again this year.
It is with great pleasure to be part of an evening that celebrates the exceptional standards of care that pharmacies in Scotland deliver.
The pharmacy contract in Scotland is evolving and building on the strengths of the existing model through several developments that include the extension of the Minor Ailments Service, which will be available to everyone from April 2020.
It is abundantly clear that pharmacists are increasingly playing a more clinical role in delivering positive health outcomes, and the wider pharmacy team has a much more integral and enhanced role in helping support pharmacists deliver against the vision for community pharmacy in Scotland.
Now more than ever before, community pharmacy needs support.
Numark can provide that support through the development of pharmacy services’ resources, negotiating with our wholesale and supplier partners to offer competitive commercial deals, providing enhanced training solutions for the entire pharmacy team, and providing a range of tools and resources designed to grow your business.

Teva UK Limited
Teva UK Limited fully understands and appreciates how important and challenging the pharmacist’s role is. From being the first contact with a healthcare professional the patient may have; to providing advice on treatments, and working collaboratively with other healthcare professionals – we know it’s a challenging role and one that fully deserves to be rewarded. Of course a pharmacist brings a lot more to the role than just their knowledge. It is a very varied profession, which requires an individual in possession of a wide range of skills and competencies – including a strong appetite for continuous learning, first-class customer service skills and adaptability to implement the range of innovative new services now available through pharmacies. With the magnitude of the pharmacist’s role in mind, we at Teva are delighted to show our support to the profession through supporting the Pharmacist of the Year category at the Scottish Pharmacist Awards. As a leading generics manufacturer, Teva are committed to the industry as a whole and we have the resources to be able to tailor our offering and provide pharmacy and pharmacists with exactly the kind of support that’s needed to allow community pharmacy in Scotland to continue with the important job of delivering first class healthcare to patients. Teva UK Ltd have been around for over 80 years and supply more packs of medicine to the National Health Service than anyone else! The team at Teva and I are extremely passionate about our customers in Scotland and we’re confident that we can continue to work with local pharmacy to improve health and make people feel better. Best of luck to those individuals and teams that are nominated or who enter the Scottish Pharmacist Awards.
Valneva are delighted to support the Scottish Pharmacist Awards this year
It is a great pleasure to be part of an evening that celebrates the exceptional standards of care that pharmacies in Scotland deliver.
Over 72 million trips abroad are made from the UK every year.1However, from a survey of over 1,000 UK travellers, only 41% of travellers sought advice from a clinic before travelling.2 Of those who seek advice, most visit their GP Practice, however in areas of the UK only 9% of GP Practices offer a full travel health service.2 This means that the health of many travellers is potentially at risk.
Valneva UK Limited has, therefore, developed the Valneva in Partnership (VIP) programme – a suite of tools, assets and resources carefully designed to provide pharmacists with the necessary support to develop comprehensive travel health services and address this unmet need. Please visit vip.valnevauk.com for further information.
We look forward to supporting your travel health business.
