GMLPC Finalists at the C+D Awards 2021

GMLPC Finalists at the C+D Awards 2021

November 25, 2021

We are incredibly proud to announce that GMLPC was shortlisted as finalists for the Covid Hero – Outstanding Team Award and the Above and Beyond Award at the @chemistdruggist Awards 2021! 

This represents the achievements of our pharmacy contractors, pharmacy teams across Greater Manchester and the GMLPC office team!

We were recognised for the work we had undertaken to help contractors become designated COVID-19 vaccination sites, the information we provided in relation to track and trace, safety measures, COVID-19 training, and testing for staff members.

Following the government’s confirmation of community pharmacy’s involvement in the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme, GMLPC supported contractors and pharmacy teams to help them continue offering their services and contribute to the biggest NHS vaccination programme in history!

Additional pressures initiated by the COVID-19 pandemic meant that extra money from the PQS this year was more crucial than ever. We supported all of our 600 contractors to help them secure this payment.

The LPC team put in a number of measures, including five-point action plans for PCNs, one-to-one coaching sessions and a training log and tracker for contractors to help everyone stay on track.

Please join us in congratulating GMLPC, pharmacy teams and all contractors across Greater Manchester for this brilliant achievement!

We hope contractors in Greater Manchester will also consider putting themselves forward for these awards in the future!
