As part of their ongoing charity appeal for the NSPCC the staff and managers from Rowlands Pharmacy scaled new heights to raise an additional £1250 for the NSPCC. Most people who are new to abseiling usually start off on an indoor climbing wall about 20 ft above the ground but not the team from Rowlands. They decided to abseil from one of the tallest and most imposing buildings in Merseyside, Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral. And as you can see from the pictures the weather was not exactly what you would call pleasant. The team of intrepid explorers are :

Andy Gemmel
Steve Charnock
Neil Stewart
David Young
Sarah Gower
James Allen
Andy Farr
Kenny Black
Susan Black
Mike Johnson
Vicky Wilson

And a special Mention goes to James Allen who was so laid back about the whole thing he actually did it in his Pyjamas!

Men in All blacks kits doing the haka at rowlands staff confernence

Rowland’s Pharmacy Staff Conference 2011

rowlands pharmacy brandingrowlands pride in everything logoPPlay Video With Speakers Switched on

Rowlands Pharmacy held its 2nd annual Employee Conference at the Holiday Inn Runcorn in June the theme of which was ‘Pride in Everything’

Delegates were invited to a Welcome Message and Dinner and given overnight accommodation with the conference taking place the following day. With delegates arriving and departing each day, (750 attendees over the 5 day period), there were plenty of logistics to contend with but the Conference Team made sure that everything ran to schedule.

The Welcome Message was delivered by Managing Director, Kenny Black and was followed by dinner. This gave the opportunity for staff from across the country to mix with the many Head Office staff that were in attendance.

The conference itself was split into two areas, an exhibition room and a lecture theatre.

The exhibition room was filled with stands from suppliers and Head Office departments. Suppliers were able to talk through and offer demonstrations of their latest products while Head Office departments had the opportunity to fully explain their role and answer any key questions.

In the lecture theatre delegates were entertained with interactive presentations from suppliers and Head Office staff. However, the highlight of the day was the team building session which saw 6 genuine rugby players burst through the doors and perform the Haka to a startled audience who were subsequently taught the traditional Māori dance.

All staff had a thoroughly enjoyable time and are looking forward to next year’s being bigger and better than ever!

One of the pleasures of visiting Sowerby Bridge is the greeting and smile you receive from Karina when you walk through the door.  Every customer that steps inside this Pharmacy is made to feel special and welcome and nothing is too much trouble.
Positivity flows out of this individual to every initiative or new direction we try to take the branch.  Celebrity slim has been a roaring success in Sowerby Bridge and in no small part is down to Karina, she tried CS and lost weight on the programme and this has been communicated to all her customers.

Driver of the Year: Jonathon Astle from Chesterfield Road store, Mansfield

Rowlands pharmacy driver of the year 2011 Jonathon AstleJonathon stands out due to his attitude.  He is very popular and the patients he delivers to on a regular basis look forward to his visit as he takes time to talk to them. Jonathon receives regular requests from patients and staff at the local GP surgeries to deliver medicines urgently which means he often works past his contracted finish time whilst collecting scripts and waiting for them to be dispensed, but Jonathon does this with willingly as his priority is to his patients and wants to make sure they get their medication.

Pre Registration Pharmacist of the Year: Danielle Watt from Ellon store, Aberdeenshire

Rowlands Pre registered pharmacist of the year 2011 Danielle Watt Danielle’s attitude throughout the Pre-Reg year has been outstanding. She spent time planning what she wanted to get out of her Pre-Reg year and took every opportunity to develop herself and others whilst constantly reviewing her progress against her goals.

She has impressed her tutor, branch staff and the training team alike by the way that she has dealt with challenging situations and unusual circumstances.  Danielle has been proactive in seeking out opportunities to test and apply her clinical knowledge in difficult and unusual circumstances with patient care as her priority.

Area Manager of the Year: Debby Crockford, Area 4 (Hampshire/Portsmouth area)

Rowlands Pharmacy area manager of the year 2011 Debby CrockfordReading the pharmacy press over the last year or so you couldn’t fail to notice the publicity generated by Healthy Living Pharmacy. This was a project introduced in Portsmouth and right from the very beginning Debby threw herself into the challenge of making HLP a success for Rowlands in Portsmouth. To date under Debby’s stewardship Rowlands has the most HLPs in Portsmouth with her pharmacies at Kingston Crescent, Fratton Rd, Highland Rd, Winter Rd and recently Eastney Rd all achieving Level One status which is a credit to all the staff involved and Debby herself. In fact there are two more pharmacies that have almost achieved this status and comparing  this to Lloyds and Boots, who have only three HLPs between them in Portsmouth, this is a fantastic achievement and we look forward to Rowlands having the first pharmacy to achieve Level 2 status.

Branch of the Year: Kingston Crescent, Portsmouth

Rowlands Pharmacy Branch of the year 2011Last year the branch managed more than a 40% increase in their prescription volume following relocation into a local surgery. They have impressed the GPs so much with their health promotion that the surgery is writing to all their patients instructing them to visit the pharmacy for a BP check.

The Kingston Crescent team have been so proactive with the Healthy Living Pharmacy scheme that they were recognised by the PCT as Healthy Living Pharmacy of the year and their manager, Pam, as Healthy Living Pharmacy leader of the year.

 

Outstanding Achievement Award: Stephen Allen from Arnside and Milnthorpe store, Cumbria

Rowlands Pharmacy outstanding achievement award 2011Stephen was on his delivery route when one of his housebound customers failed to open the door.  Immediately Stephen knew that something wasn’t right and decided to investigate further.  When opening the letterbox he heard a noise and at this point called the Police and persuaded them to break into the house.

Once inside they found the lady on the floor, dehydrated and suffering from hyperthermia.  She had been there for at least a couple of days and Police told Stephen that he had saved this lady’s life.  She was taken to hospital where she made a full recovery. This story shows what can be achieved when you go that extra mile for the sake of our customers.

Kenny Black, MD, Rowlands Pharmacy said:

We are extremely proud of our staff and the difference they have made to the organisation. We have created these awards to recognise and reward outstanding achievements and demonstrate how much we value our staff.”

“I would like to congratulate everyone who was shortlisted, as well as winners, because it shows they are providing an excellent customer experience within our branches. There are staff that will go beyond the call of duty to help our patients and customers and we believe now, more than ever, the importance of rewarding and recognising excellence.”

“We look forward to next year’s awards and to recognising more of your achievements”
