Not only does the event recognise and honour the achievements and dedication of pharmacists and other healthcare workers, but it is a way for professionals across the industry to come together.

Each year, the PDA sponsors the Student Leadership category of the Scottish, Welsh, and Northern Irish Healthcare Awards to celebrate future professionals. The PDA is pleased to have sponsored last year’s Student Leadership category and to have awarded the prize to Amy Reid, of Robert Gordon University.
