We would not, of course, be able to stage these fantastic awards without the support of our category and associated sponsors. Such is the enthusiasm of these companies to support and reward the great contribution that pharmacy makes to NI healthcare, that they are always keen to be involved in this illustrious event.

Combining industry experience, knowledge, and commercial understanding, Numark gives community pharmacies the tools it needs to thrive in an increasingly challenging environment.

McLernon Computers

‘McLernons’ means two things – local expertise and ground-breaking innovation. With increasing financial pressures and ever-reducing margins, now, more than ever, pharmacists must embrace technology as a way to run a lean business model, while always providing the high levels of customer service expected by patients.

Pharmacists were the very first healthcare professionals to integrate IT into their delivery of pharmaceutical care and our team of developers at McLernons work hard to ensure that our customers have access to the very best, most innovative solutions – in the dispensary, at the front of shop, or for head office. We know that the expectations of patients have increased exponentially in the past few years, particularly with the increased use of mobile phone apps, and we have developed our Medi Marshal app and others to meet this need. We are a local company employing local people, with our Customer Services and technical teams based in our offices outside Saintfield, and we are on hand to respond to any queries, deal with any problems, or visit your pharmacy to carry out upgrades or repairs. We understand that your pharmacy systems, whether they be MPS Dispensing or MPS Retail, are vital to ensuring the profitability of your business, and our response times and speed of assistance cannot be equalled. Just as we continue to innovate and develop new software applications for our customers, I have no  doubt that every pharmacy throughout NI is innovative in the way it delivers services to patients. I would urge you to take some time to sit down and complete an entry form for the awards and look forward to seeing you in February.

We believe that this award celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of pharmacy in Northern Ireland, and highlights the innovative approach that many within the sector take to driving the profession forward.

Northern Ireland’s community pharmacies are renowned for providing an enhanced service for their patients, with many going above and beyond the ‘call of duty’ on a daily basis to improve patient outcomes.

Alliance Healthcare is equally committed to providing a high level of service to our customers. Since opening our Belfast Service Centre in 2016, we have used our 80 years of experience to support Northern Ireland’s community pharmacies to ensure the optimum level of patient care.

We firmly believe that community pharmacy plays an integral role in bringing healthcare closer to patients, and work closely with many entrepreneurial pharmacies to create new income streams and develop niche opportunities, while continuing to put patients at the heart of what they do.

By working in partnership with you, Alliance Healthcare can help you navigate through the rapidly changing healthcare market, supporting you and your business to grow.

Like the pharmacies we work with, we are committed to being the best provider of healthcare services, and finding solutions to help our customers make a real difference in their patients’ lives.
