Jason Sammut, pharmacist at ‘LiveLife Pharmacy’ in Noosa, Queensland has taken out this year’s Australian Patients Association (APA) Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist Award.
A pharmacist since graduating from the University of Queensland in 1995, working both in Australia and the UK, Mr Sammut beat a strong field to take out the award for exceeding his patients’ expectations.
He has also been recognised for going above and beyond for his local community including visiting the vulnerable and checking on the sick, elderly and the bereaved.
Pharmacy Guild National President Professor Trent Twomey says Mr Sammut displays all the attributes the Guild encourages in the pharmacy profession.
“As a passionate community pharmacist, I encourage our profession to go the extra mile to make a difference for our patients,” says Professor Twomey.
“It’s great to see Jason’s efforts being fittingly recognised and he follows in the footsteps of the most dedicated pharmacists who have previously been named ‘Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist’ by the APA.”
The sixth annual APA Awards event was held at Melbourne’s Sofitel Hotel on 20 July 2023.
