Guild congratulates winner of APA’s Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist Award
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia congratulates Jason Sammut, who took out this year’s Australian Patients Association (APA) Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist Award 2023.
The sixth annual APA Awards event was held at Melbourne’s Sofitel Hotel.
Jason Sammut beat a strong field to take out the award for exceeding his patients’ expectations at his ‘LiveLife Pharmacy’ in Noosa, Queensland.
He’s been a pharmacist for 28 years after graduating from the University of Queensland in 1995 and has worked in the profession both here and in England.
He’s also been recognised for going above and beyond for his local community including visiting the vulnerable, checking on the sick, elderly and the bereaved.
Pharmacy Guild National President Professor Trent Twomey says Jason displays all the attributes the Guild encourages in the pharmacy profession.
“As a passionate community pharmacist, I encourage our profession to go the extra mile to make a difference for our patients,” Professor Twomey said.
“It’s great to see Jason’s efforts being fittingly recognised and he follows in the footsteps of the most dedicated pharmacists who have previously been named ‘Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist’ by the APA.”
The Guild would also like to congratulate all APA award winners.
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia is a proud sponsor of the APA Annual Awards 2023.
