August newsletter 2021

This month we're taking a look back at EMIS Live Pharmacy, celebrating the winners of the first EMIS Community Pharmacy Awards and getting you prepared for flu season.

That's a wrap! Recapping EMIS Live Pharmacy

Over the last two weeks, we've been holding free online seminars and training designed to help community pharmacy teams make the most of technology and the digital transformation taking place within the industry. We welcomed Leyla Hannbeck, CEO at AIM for our keynote session and Health Education England’s Henrietta Mbeah-Bankas for the digital capabilities for the pharmacy workforce workshop, as well as many of our customers attending the sessions. In case you missed any of the sessions, you can watch them all back here.

We also celebrated our first EMIS Community Pharmacy Awards which recognised the success and achievements of our community pharmacy customers. Check out all the winners below and find out more about their achievements here
