THIS pharmacy team gave a big cheer when they found out they have been nominated for our health awards.
The team from the Sainsbury’s store, in Wallington Way, Fareham, have been shortlisted in the Pharmacy of the Year category in the Best of Health Awards.
Daniel Omoregbee, pharmacist, said: ‘It came as a pleasant surprise to be nominated and now to be shortlisted.
‘We are proud of ourselves and for our work.
‘We’re coming along and we’re really excited about the awards night.
‘Even if we don’t win it is so nice to be recognised for the work we do.
‘It’s good we are appreciated by the community and put forward by the people that we serve.
‘At this pharmacy we aim to provide the very best quality and care, and we constantly strive to improve.’
They will find out their fate, along with 75 other individuals and teams, that have been shortlisted across 12 categories, at our awards ceremony.
This year’s prestigious awards take place at Portsmouth Guildhall on Friday, September 21.
Last month we named all our nominees that were put forward by readers of The News.
Now a panel of judges have whittled it down to a shortlist, which has been printed on the right.
Join us in celebrating these health heroes.
