I undertook my undergraduate degree in Nottingham and completed my training at Chesterfield Royal Hospital Foundation Trust. Since then I have worked in hospital pharmacy in both Derby and Chesterfield and have worked in a variety of hospital specialties including gastroenterology, palliative care, anticoagulation and OPAT (IV antibiotics at home).
I moved to work at Royal Primary in 2016 as a practice based pharmacist as part of the first wave of a National Pilot to increase the number of clinical pharmacist working in GP surgeries. I very much enjoy my patient facing role and am committed to ensuring safe medication use and best patient care. The majority of my work includes medication reviews and medication related problems, queries and monitoring.

I undertook my training at Sheffield Royal Hospital and my first job as a qualified pharmacy technician was at Guys Hospital London where I gained valuable experience working in a busy teaching hospital pharmacy.
I have also worked at Queen Elizabeth II hospital in Welwyn Garden City as well as Chesterfield Royal Hospital.
In 2003 I moved to work at Derbyshire PCT as a medication review technician and in 2005 took up the position as dispensary manager at Evelyn Medical Centre in Hope.
After 5 years I went on to position of dispensary manager at Bakewell Medical Centre where I stayed until June 2018. I took up my present position as pharmacy technician with Royal Primary Care in September 2018.
This was a new role for RPC to trial additional help to pharmacists and be able to make best use of the different skills available within the pharmacy team
I enjoy working as part of the team helping patients get the best outcome from taking their medicines.
