The 4th totalhealth Pharmacy Awards took place on Sunday 5th May in the Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone. The event was attended by 270 members and partners of Ireland’s largest co-operative pharmacy group. Dáithí Ó Sé, RTE personality and Rose of Tralee host, returned to host this year’s celebration of the achievements of totalhealth pharmacies and team members.
The event gives the totalhealth the opportunity to acknowledge the effort and dedication of their members, who work tirelessly to serve the needs of their local communities. Chairman of the Board, Rory O’Donnell, remarked ‘the success of our brand lies with our members and their teams. Tonight is about thanking them for continuing to live and breathe the totalhealth values of trusted local care, offering their patients the highest standard of service and care.’
5 awards were up for grabs on the night:
Managing Director of totalhealth, John Arnold, was delighted with the success of the event. ‘We work for our members, so this event is just one small way of thanking them for their continued support and also to treat them to a well-deserved, fun night out. We’re particularly excited that tonight’s charity raffle, won by Mary in totalhealth Pharmacy Ballyhaunis, generated €1,800 for Mayo Roscommon Hospice Foundation, a charity we are delighted to be supporting this year.’
As well as being a fantastic excuse to get dressed up, the awards also allow totalhealth members to connect. Teams from right across the country travelled to Athlone to celebrate the brand and their colleagues’ achievements. totalhealth members are committed to supporting each other; the success of each independent pharmacy is integral to the success of the overall brand.
totalhealth Pharmacy is one of Ireland’s largest symbol groups, comprising over 75 independent pharmacies, owned 100% by its members.
