There was great news for McKeevers Chemists Castleblayney when they discovered their pharmacy had been shortlisted for the Covid Champions Award as part of the Pharmacy in Focus Awards which takes place later this year.
When Coronavirus first hit Ireland in March 2020, it had a major impact on McKeevers Chemists chain of pharmacies. However, they stepped up to the mark and went above and beyond for their customers, patients and each other, both internal and external to the business. Everybody worked together showing resilience, dedication and initiative. A pandemic was something McKeevers Chemists had never experienced before but working together they remained open throughout being classed as an essential service. McKeevers put in place all the recommended measures to provide the same high level of service and healthcare throughout the unprecedented lockdown measures that they had to overcome. Throughout these uncertain times McKeevers Chemists teams worked tirelessly to ensure no customer or patient was impacted, they just carried out their daily tasks in a different way, so their level of service remained the same and consistent throughout exceeding expectations. This was a learning curve for everyone and McKeevers Chemists are grateful to everyone who worked with them during these times.
This is a great achievement for the McKeevers Chemists Castleblayney!
