John Nuttall, CEO at Well commented:
“It’s so important that we have strong relationships with all our suppliers, and I was delighted to welcome them to this special event. It was a very proud moment for me to be able to share our new strategy with them, revealing our bold ambition to be the best prescription experience in the UK, and our aim to meet five crucial customer promises. I’d like to thank each and every one of our suppliers for their support, which is key to us achieving our future goals.”
Sophie Baldock, Engagement Manager at Well said:
“Our people are our difference, and I’m so proud to work with such amazing colleagues that have a major impact on the business and make a huge difference to the health and wellbeing of the community every day.
“One award particularly close to my heart is the Charity Fundraiser of the Year Award. Our Healthcare Service Centre in Stoke-on-Trent have gone above and beyond over the last year to raise a staggering £15,000 for the Stroke Association, including a skydive and swimming with sharks! What an inspirational team.”
