TEAMtime at Alphega Pharmacy
Through our partnership with Alphega Pharmacy we want to help pharmacy teams establish simple routines that improve mental wellbeing for individuals and organisations.
The week commencing July 5 – 9 2021 will be dedicated to TEAMtime!
Following on from our successful partnership in 2020 on the ACTNow wellbeing campaign, the charity and Alphega Pharmacy are collaborating once again. This time we’re shifting the balance of focus inward to help the Alphega Pharmacy team and members champion wellbeing in the workplace.
“We recognise that this has been an especially challenging 18 months for our pharmacy members. At Alphega Pharmacy we wanted to do something to help” commented Raj Nutan, UK Country Head of Alphega.
“Pharmacy teams spend much of their day focusing on others and can often find it difficult to find the time to focus on themselves. BUT it’s important. During TEAMtime we want to help our members prioritise themselves and their teams. Working with Pharmacist Support and encouraging our members to make time for TEAMtime, we hope will kick start an Alphega Pharmacy team wellbeing routine.”
Across the week, newly trained Alphega ‘Wellbeing Champions’ and charity ambassadors will be supporting members to participate in a number of activities, including TEAMtime tea breaks, TEAMtime positivity (capturing and showcasing appreciation for others and celebrating success), TEAMtime active challenges and TEAMTime mindfulness.
Danielle Hunt, Chief Executive of Pharmacist Support said:
“We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Alphega Pharmacy again. We have seen through our research over the past couple of years increasingly high levels of stress and burnout across the profession. We’re keen to work with organisations across the sector to address these issues and as an independent charity, feel we are well placed to provide this support. Through our partnership with Alphega Pharmacy we want to help pharmacy teams establish simple routines that improve mental wellbeing for individuals and organisations. We want to showcase how setting aside a small amount of time everyday for wellbeing can improve mood, relationships and productivity.”
