Penarth’s Washington Pharmacy has announced that it has won the “Independent Pharmacy Practice of the Year” title at the Welsh Pharmacy Awards held at the Vale of Glamorgan Hotel.
Pharmacist – and proprietor of Washington Pharmacy – Jane Soltys said “We’re absolutely thrilled to have won the Independent Pharmacy Practice of the Year award. Being the best in Wales is a wonderful accolade to have and could not have been achieved without the commitment and hard work of our dedicated team of healthcare professionals and our many loyal customers. This is an award for the many successful independent businesses of Penarth and not just for Washington Pharmacy.”
Washington Pharmacy in Stanwell Road has been an independent pharmacy since the 1950s, and has been owned and managed by Jane Soltys since 2005.
In reaching their decision, the judging panel is said to have recognised the contribution Washington Pharmacy provides to the health and wellbeing of the citizens of Penarth, in particular the close liaison with all GP surgeries of the town.
