Esperance Pharmacy Assistant To Represent Western Australia

Local pharmacy assistant, Bryan Hann from Castletown Chemist has been chosen to represent Western Australia at the National Finals of the 2016 Pharmacy Guild of Australia/GuildSuper Pharmacy Assistant of the Year Award (PATY).

Pharmacy Guild of Australia Training Manager and National PATY Judge, Ms Deborah Scholz said this year the award is celebrating ten years of recognising ‘the best of the best’ pharmacy assistants in Australia, and received over 580 nominations.

“The PATY Award was created to recognise pharmacy assistants who not only go the extra mile to help their customers but are also proactive in developing their careers. In doing so, they encourage others to strive for success and actively contribute to the community pharmacy industry,” she said

Judges picked Byran Hann form 15 other state finalists at a recent state workshop where each participant had the chance to demonstrate their pharmacy knowledge and showcase their skills in customer service and leadership.

“Each candidate displays a strong commitment to their work and the industry, which was a pleasure to see – it was a hard task to pick just one, but Bryan really shone,” Ms Scholz said.

Bryan Hann was delighted to be selected as the Western Australia finalist on Thursday.

“I have been pinching myself all morning! Everyone in the workshop was fantastic, and I’m so grateful to be involved, and have this fantastic opportunity to learn from the best” Bryan said.

General Manager of GuildSuper, Ms Teresa Mills, said the organisation is pleased to be the major sponsor of the award and to support the successful features of pharmacy assistants.

“The calibre of PATY nominees is always extremely high, which is a great indication of the outstanding pharmacy assistants that make a difference to so many lives, in our communities, every day.

We’re very proud to be involved with a program that recognises pharmacy assistants who not only take the extra step in their jobs, but also in their career.

“Congratulations to Bryan Hann for his achievements as the Western Australia winner, I am sure he will represent Esperance and Western Australia with pride!” Ms Mills Said.

Bryan Hann will represent Western Australia at the National Finals to be held at the Pharmacy Assistant National Conference on 28 October at the Gold Coast. The National winner will take home over $10,000 in cash, prizes and rewards.
