Key worker from Harrow wins national award

Winners of the eighth annual Recognition of Excellence (RoE) Awards were announced earlier this week.

The awards are presented to key healthcare workers for outstanding achievements in the world of community pharmacy, this year’s finalists include a dispensing assistant from Harrow.

Sheena Sanhye, dispensing assistant at Honeypot Pharmacy in Harrow, took home a highly commended accolade for the Healthy Living Advisor Award.

She has made brilliant strides with her pharmacy’s smoking cessation service and prides herself on offering personalised lifestyle advice in addition to product recommendations.

She works hard to encourage individuals to create new, positive habits when they get cravings and builds good relationships with them, which also helps them to quit, she says.

Finalists were treated to an all-expenses-paid trip to central London for the awards ceremony that took place over lunchtime at the glamorous 8 Northumberland Avenue.

The event involved a champagne drinks reception with the top brass of the pharmacy industry, an inspirational speech from special guest Jonny Benjamin MBE and a glittering awards ceremony where the finalists in attendance collected their prizes.

Commenting on the Awards, editor of Training Matters and RoE Awards host Helena Beer said: “Our finalists represent the very best of community pharmacy. I’m thrilled to be able to reward these individuals for their hard work, dedication and passion for helping the people in their communities live better and healthier lives.

“The past year has been exceptional in more ways than one and it’s been a pleasure to share the stories of what community pharmacy teams have achieved despite very challenging circumstances.”
