Mintlaw Pharmacy’s Sarah Patterson has won her third award of the year.

This year, Sarah was nominated for three different pre-registration awards by the pharmacy, winning all three.

Sarah, from Fraserburgh, said of her success: “I really do like working in the pharmacy. The girls here have been really helpful and supportive. They have all been really happy for me.

“I won the Scottish Pre-Registration Pharmacist of the Year award back in February with the Community Phamacists Scotland. That was held in Edinburgh and my tutor Michelle at the pharmacy managed to come along.

“I was then awarded by Rowlands Pharmacy Pre-Registration Pharmacist of the Year which was held in Manchester.

“Then I got to go to London for my final award, again the Pre-Reg’ Pharmacist of the Year, but this time it was by the Chemist and Druggest awards 2012, at the end of May.”

In March, Sarah had said of her pre-registration: “I am thoroughly enjoying my time as a student but am really looking forward to qualifying as a pharmacist so I can
go on to give my patients the care and support they deserve.”
