Harry Mahmood Biography – Harry Mahmood Wiki
Harry Mahmood, age 35, is a Regional Operations Manager at Wells Pharmacy in Darlaston. He was previously a relief manager at Wells Pharmacy.
Born Haroon Mahmood and known as Harry to his friends and family, the 35 year old awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM), for his services to the community in the West Midlands, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. When the pandemic hit and the national lockdown was imposed, Harry ensured that all those who were unable to leave their homes received their prescriptions. He made deliveries in his off hours, before and after work, and during his lunch break – alongside his 40 hour working week at the pharmacy.
He said: “I received a British Citizens Award back in 2019 and I wanted to do more after that accolade. When Covid really landed our workload in the pharmacy increased massively, although doctors were still working there were no face-to-face appointments which was a huge problem.
“I tried to help people best I could. We had many, many patients who are elderly so we created a list of vulnerable patients to make sure they were ok, we know a lot of them live on their own. Our delivery service is limited so I knew we had to make a vulnerable list and make sure those people were caught up on to make sure they were not short.”
Prior to the pandemic, Harry also supported underprivileged children with academic assistance and mentoring weekly on Sundays. When schools were closed and e-learning was introduced, he created a Zoom conference and online support group to ensure those children received the support they needed.
He added: “I turned 34 on December 4 and that’s when the email dropped to say I had been awarded a BEM. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the email – it was a nice birthday surprise. I’m just one person in this huge jigsaw and the community of Darlaston and the community I work with, especially my colleagues, they all do a great job. I might have the name on the accolade but it is for everyone. I am very proud of the team I work with.”
