Superintendent pharmacist Yvonne Williams said: “We are thrilled that Wendy has won this award - it is thoroughly deserved. She is an extremely hard working and valued member of staff.

“The judges were particularly impressed by her commitment to improving patient care, her involvement in staff training and her assistance with the development of new systems within the company.

“The awards is always a fantastic evening, but this was even more special with Wendy’s win.”
