Earlier this month members of the Positive Solutions team joined more than 450 pharmacy professionals at Edinburgh’s International Conference Centre for the Scottish Pharmacist Awards.

The event, which runs annually, provided a great opportunity for pharmacy professional bodies, pharmacists and pharmaceutical companies to celebrate innovation, commitment and dedication to the profession. It also showcased many of the successful projects which reflect the contribution that pharmacy makes to Scottish healthcare on a daily basis.

As well as attending the ceremony, we were thrilled to co-sponsor the eHealth & Innovation Award. Positive Solutions’ MD, Charlie Denwood, presented the prestigious accolade to Patricia Hannam from the North and West Operational Unit at NHS Highland for an initiative that she developed to enable the Board’s Care at Home users to have a medication review remotely using telehealth technologies.

The evening ended with the presentation of a Merit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Pharmacy to Alex MacKinnon, who is currently Interim CEO of Royal Pharmaceutical Society Scotland.
