PCT Healthcare and Peak Pharmacy staff celebrated at awards ceremony
PCT Healthcare, incorporating Peak Pharmacy, held their first Staff Conference and Awards Dinner in October, aiming to build internal relationships between departments in the business, and recognise and reward the achievements of the staff.
PCT Healthcare is an independent pharmacy chain. Peak Pharmacy, the firm’s pharmacies in Derbyshire, was founded in Chesterfield in 1981 and PCT Healthcare remains a family-owned entity today. Having grown from one pharmacy in Chesterfield, to now owning and managing over 120 pharmacies in the UK, PCT Healthcare employs over 1400 people.
Over 350 staff members attended the event, where an afternoon session consisted of introductions from senior management, an opportunity to network with business associates and sponsors, and chance to meet other internal teams within PCT Healthcare.
The main focus of the event was the evening awards ceremony, which recognised the hard work, determination & in some cases extraordinary achievements of individuals & teams throughout the business.
The ‘Special Recognition Award’ was won by David Smith (right), a pharmacist from Peak Pharmacy at the Greendale Centre in Dronfield. David has raised over £100,000 to date for various charities, working in an extremely busy pharmacy during the week and spending most weekends running at events all over the UK for his designated charities. True to form, David left the Nottingham Belfry at 4am on the Sunday to drive to Cardiff to run a half marathon, complete in his regular Scooby Doo attire.

Joe Cattee, Director at PCT Healthcare, said: “It was an extremely enjoyable experience, and a great opportunity to see so many of our staff in such a glamorous environment. The main reason behind the event was to recognise & reward the hard work all our colleagues put it on a daily basis, as they make our business a success. We wanted to thank them all for their support, and I am confident that we achieved this from the feedback I’ve received and the conversations on the night.”
“We’re extremely proud to employ the number of people we do and we constantly do our best to apply our family values to drive the business in the right direction. It’s fantastic to recognise the achievements of so many of our staff who continue to impress us with their tireless attitude, and I wish we had done this sooner!”
