Investors in People Gold Level Award
High Street Pharmacy, along with the Abbey Chemist Group, are proud to announce that we have achieved gold level accreditation from Investors in People! In September 2016, having already achieved standard level accreditation, the company was delighted to receive the prestigious gold level certification. This marks us as an organisation committed to providing care for the community, putting the needs of our patients above all else. It also demonstrates the ethos of team work and support within our stores, as well as our commitment to staff development.
Accord Hospice Rainbow Ramble
In August 2017 staff from High St Pharmacy, along with our colleagues from Abbey Chemist, came together as part of our annual team building event, taking part in the Accord Hospice Rainbow Ramble. The day involved completion of a 3K walk/run in the park at Ferguslie Gardens, with the team being showered in coloured paint powder whilst completing the course. Much fun was had by all and we are proud to have raised £1510 to support the hospice as they continue to carry out such vital work, supporting patients and their families in the local community.
