National Pharmacy Week 2017

On Friday, 8 September, National Pharmacy Week was celebrated at the Piet Retief Hospital, by treating the children in the Pediatric Ward.

The children received a Wimpy cheeseburger and chips, with a Kinder JOY chocolate and milkshake. Each child also received a balloon they could wear as a hat. The pharmacists at the Piet Retief Hospital also gave the children cupcakes and a cold drink. They produced a lovely puppet show to entertain the children on the day.
