Summing up Ian’s attributes at the gathering pharmacist Adrian Tebby told members: ”No customer request is ever too much or inconvenient. His pharmaceutical and clinical knowledge is held in high regard by the community. He even walked five miles to work during the snow. Ian manages a superb pharmacy team.”
Ian Morton who owns the Axminster business said. “Congratulations Ian on a well deserved award.”
Mr Findlay said: “I am really proud and grateful to the supporting staff in the shop who enable me to provide patient centred care both in the pharmacy and when I am working at Axminster Surgery two days a week.”
