Laois woman crowned People’s Pharmacist of the Year

What a stunning achievement this is!

Laois woman Audrey Kingston has been crowned Pharmaton People’s Pharmacist of the Year at a ceremony over the weekend.

Originally hailing from Castletown, Audrey Kingston has become a familiar face to customers in Portlaoise having worked in the town for 16 years.

In that time she has built a reputation for customer centric and friendly service as is evidenced by her nomination for the national ‘People’s Pharmacist of the Year Award’.

From first opening the doors of Chemco in 2016, she has steadily built a loyal customer base and the recent amalgamation of the business with the pharmacy previously known as ‘Adams’ has only seen that grow stronger.

The winner for the award was chosen via a public vote.

Speaking to LaoisToday last week, Audrey told how working in a pharmacy is her passion.

She said: “I have been working in pharmacy since I was 15 years old.

“Pharmacy is my passion and customers have always been my focus.

“Thankfully, I work with a fantastic team which allows me the time to maintain that focus.”

Well done Audrey.
