A local trainee pharmacist from Rowlands Pharmacy in Mintlaw has picked up a top prize at the glittering Scottish Pharmacist Awards ceremony held in Edinburgh.
Sarah Patterson is on a placement year at Rowlands Pharmacy on The Square and has dreamed of a career in pharmacy since a young age. Her commitment and dedication to caring for her community won her the Pre-registration Student of the Year Award, sponsored by AAH Pharmaceuticals.
The independent judging panel applauded Sarah for her very supportive and sensitive nature, as well as the high quality of pharmaceutical care which she offers her community.
Sarah said: “I am so pleased to receive this award but yet it was so unexpected. Michelle, my tutor, has been and continues to be a great support and without her I wouldn’t have even been shortlisted. I am thoroughly enjoying my time as a student but am really looking forward to qualifying as a pharmacist so I can go on to give my patients the care and support they deserve.”
