PATY nominations closing soon

The closing dates for nominations for the Pharmacy Guild of Australia/Maxigesic Pharmacy Assistant of the Year Award (PATY) are fast approaching, with third-party nominations closing Friday, 2 July 2021 and self-nominations closing on 16 July 2021.

The PATY Award is open to all Australian pharmacy assistants with a minimum of two years of industry experience.

Chris Owen, Acting President of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Queensland Branch, says that with $10,000 worth of prizes available for the national winner plus additional prizes for the state winners, the award is well worth entering.

“The prizes for PATY are a huge draw.

“The national winner receives a cash prize of $5,000, a customised training package, and travel to this year’s Pharmacy Assistant National Conference (PA2021) and next year’s Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference (APP).

“State winners also receive travel to PA2021, plus the top ten finalists in each state are invited to participate in state workshops, providing professional development opportunities for participants.

“This is a great opportunity for pharmacists, pharmacy owners or other pharmacy staff to nominate an outstanding pharmacy assistant.

“The nomination process is very straightforward and can be completed online very quickly,” says Mr Owen.

In addition to the main award, PATY also features the Glucojel Super Star Award, which recognises outstanding customer service amongst the PATY state finalists.
