 I have over 10 years’ experience working in community pharmacy, working across the south east of England for both independent and large and small pharmacy chains. Throughout this journey I have worked in various roles as a locum, relief up to management, including area manager that have helped me develop strong links with pharmacists, doctors and some of the other pharmacy stake holders within the community within which I work. It is these strong personal relationships and a positive attitude that will help us deliver better health outcomes to our patients and a more promising future for pharmacy.

I am a CCA member, working for Lloyds Pharmacy for the last 6 years. I did my pre-registration with Lloyds, over 12 years ago. Since qualifying I have worked for many companies including Moss, Superdrug and some independents.But since rejoining Lloyds, I have taken on board many of the services that Surrey PCT have initiated, including needle exchange, supervised methadone, PGD on Chlamydia and EHC, ONPOS, Tamiflu and vaccinations. So if you do need help with any services or anything to do with pharmacy please do not hesitate to get in contact.

I have 33 years experience in Community Pharmacy which commenced with a Saturday job at the age of 15. I registered as a pharmacist in 1984 just before the ‘black list’ was introduced and when labels and prescriptions were handwritten. My experience includes working for Boots in North and Central London before marrying a pharmacist and moving to South London. Since 1987, my work experience includes: Locum, part time and full time work over the years in community pharmacy including our own business and a local private hospital. Community Pharmacy representative on EEMS Medicines Management Committee Surrey LPC and through which I have been involved in PBC.

In the short time I have been an independent contractor, I realised that in order to make a difference to the fate of Community pharmacies, I needed to get involved locally and eventually nationally. I was born into pharmacy with my father acquiring his pharmacy over 30 years ago, and his father before him owning a pharmacy in East Africa. After study at Brighton University I joined my father and bought another 2 pharmacies one of which sits in the Surrey area. Having been an active member of MSW LPC and serving as vice chair, I decided to join Surrey LPC where I believe I will make a difference and be a strong voice for the independent sector during these turbulent times.

Since qualifying from Brighton in 1994, I have always worked in community pharmacy. I have spent a number of years in each of a large multiple, large independent and a small independent, with a short break as a locum pharmacist. Eventually I purchased my own business in 2001. This experience allows me to understand the concerns in most aspects of community pharmacy. I have recently joined a local PBC group and have also represented independent pharmacies in a wholesaler forum committee. Away from pharmacy, I spend most of my time with my young family, sneaking off when possible to watch and play sport.

I have been working in community pharmacy since qualifying as a Pharmacist. After completing my pre-registration training with Lloyds Pharmacy, I have held numerous roles within the company including Pharmacy Manager at various branches, and currently work as a Professional Support Manager. I strongly feel that the role of community pharmacy can be further developed through greater focus on service provision. This would deliver better patient outcomes, as well as relieving the present strains on the NHS.
