It is evident that hospital pharmacy technicians are playing an increasingly important supporting role as pharmacists are increasingly spending more time with patient consultations and engaging local stakeholders.

The shift in emphasis from dispensing to healthcare provision has meant that the wider pharmacy team has to pull together – hospital pharmacy technicians capture the essence of this in everything that they do.

This Honour will recognise the winner’s important contribution to the hospital pharmacy technician profession. The judges will be looking for those who can demonstrate promotion of the role of the hospital pharmacy technician and those who continue to champion excellence through forward thinking and innovation.

The winners’ achievements will be an inspiration to those pursuing innovative practice, to those striving to raise standards and to pharmacists who, through their professionalism, provide models for others within hospital pharmacy.

Judges will be looking for:

  • Evidence of long-term, consistent dedication and outstanding achievements that have led to the advancement of the profession of pharmacy and public health.
  • Evidence of a large variety of skills, attributes, and accomplishments.
  • Evidence of an individual strong in character, cumulative professional accomplishments, and the ability to properly represent and model what pharmacy technicians as a profession encompasses. 
  • Evidence of an understanding the goals of pharmacy, and significantly contributing to how these goals may be achieved.

This category is open to all hospital pharmacy technicians working within the hospital sector in Ireland. Applications can be through nominating an individual or yourself. Each submission will be judged by an independent judging panel.
