Congratulations to LiveLife Pharmacy Noosa Junction Pharmacist, Jason Sammut, who received the Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist Award 2023 from the Australian Patients Association (APA) prestigious awards held at Melbourne’s Sofitel Hotel on 20th July 2023.

Jason has been a pharmacist for over 28 years and is being recognised for his commitment to providing high-level patient care, and going above and beyond for his local community.

Along with his role in the pharmacy Jason sits on the local Medication Advisory Committee for local Aged Care Homes: Carramar in Tewantin and Kabara in Cooroy. This role involves working collaboratively with doctors and nurses to develop medication related policies and procedures to protect and provide care for our most vulnerable local patients that reside in these facilities. He has also been recognised for his dedication to care, where he visits the vulnerable, checking on the sick, elderly and the bereaved in the community.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia personally congratulated Jason on his achievement with Guild Executive Director Suzanne Greenwood present to see him win the award.

Pharmacy Guild National President Professor Trent Twomey said that Jason displays all the attributes the Guild encourages in the pharmacy profession. “It’s great to see Jason’s efforts being fittingly recognised and he follows in the footsteps of the most dedicated pharmacists who have previously been named ‘Most Outstanding Community Pharmacist’ by the APA.

Well done Jason, from the whole LiveLife Team!
