2019 GuildCare Pharmacy of the Year Awards Judging Criteria

Pharmacists are some of the most trusted people in Australia, providing a range of accessible professional healthcare services to patients in their local communities.

Technology plays an increasingly important role in helping pharmacists improve patient health outcomes and medication adherence as well as providing access to education and information that empowers patients with digital health solutions.

GuildLink is proud to support the future of community pharmacy across Australia with the National GuildCare Pharmacy of the Year Awards. These awards seek to recognise the growing number of pharmacies embracing technology in their quest to improve patient health outcomes. There are two categories:
