‘ten years ago my pharmacy won the first ever Pharmacy in focus award,’ Cliff told the attendees. ‘At that event none of us attending, including myself, could have foreseen just how big an event this would become and how important it would become to community pharmacy. this annual event is always very popular in the pharmacy social calendar.
