Monica Soliman is Priceline Pharmacy’s Australia’s Favourite Pharmacist.
Ms Soliman, from Priceline Pharmacy North Rocks, was selected from over 500 Priceline Pharmacists across the country and voted for by customers, amongst Pharmacists from over 226 stores across Australia. She went head to head with eight other finalists from both metropolitan and regional areas across Australia to be crowned the winner by the judges.
‘‘I have a passion and enthusiasm for pharmacy and one of the key reasons that I became a pharmacist was my desire to have a positive impact on the health of my community,’’ she said. ‘‘I believe that if you invest time in caring for patients, and building a rapport with them, you form a bond of trust.
‘‘We are often the first port of call for people with health concerns and because it is such a highly trusted profession, people turn to their pharmacist for advice, not just on medications, but on health and beauty.
‘‘I view this award as more than a one off moment in the spotlight; it is a way to change the way people view their pharmacist - as an accessible source of knowledge.’’
