SMART Awards 2016

We would like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved in the 2016 SMART Awards held at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham on Tuesday 9th February, who, for the second year running chose Pharmacist Support as their charity partner for the event.

Raising a fantastic £1,115, the event, hosted by Hugh Dennis and Pharmacy Magazine editor Richard Thomas, was a glittering success and demonstrated CIG’s continued support for the profession’s charity.

The Smart Awards recognises pharma companies for their training and marketing activities in pharmacy over the course of the year, as well as their engagement and support of multiple and independent pharmacies and students.

The big winners on the night were GlaxoSmithKline who scooped the top prize of Best Company and Johnson & Johnson, who took home three awards, including Best Pharmacy Student Support and Best Overall Brand for Aveeno.

Commenting on the event Richard Thomas, Editor of Pharmacy Magazine said “The event was a huge success and we are so proud to support such a great charity and know that the funds raised will help and support the many pharmacists facing stress and hardship on a daily basis.”
