Well-deserved congratulations to Sarah Chambers, our Supervising Pharmacist, Hickey's Grafton Street. Sarah was awarded the accolade of 'Young Community Pharmacist of the Year 2017' at the Irish Pharmacy Awards (IPA), on Saturday the 20th May 2017, at the Clayton Hotel Dublin 4.
The Young Community Pharmacist of the Year Award recognises rising talent amongst those individuals, whom in the early stages of their pharmacy careers, are already demonstrating that they can make a difference to the pharmacy profession, the companies they work within, and the communities they serve.
Sarah, like all our Hickeys Pharmacy pharmacists, has always excelled in her role. Sarah shined through in October 2016, when her quick-thinking actions saved a 17-year-old girl from entering anaphylactic shock, after being exposed to a product containing nuts. Sarah administered two adrenaline pens to the girl, after she presented with the symptoms of anaphylactic shock including a rash and swollen lips.
Well done Sarah, from all your proud colleagues in Hickeys Pharmacy!
