Where did you study Pharmacy?
After completing my A-levels in Chemistry, Biology, Maths, and English, I went on to study pharmacy for four years at Kings College London and graduated in 2015. I did a pre-registration year at London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust’s Ealing Hospital and continued to work there before moving to St. Peter’s Hospital, an NHS district general hospital in Chertsey, in 2018. At the same time from 2018, I started to gain experience in community pharmacy with Lalys Pharmacies in Hampshire.
What made you want to be a Pharmacist?
I always knew I wanted to work in healthcare and help people, really enjoyed science at school and became aware of pharmacy through family who helped me acquire Cobham Pharmacy.
What do you enjoy about being a Pharmacist?
I have always been a ‘people person’, so I enjoy interacting with customers, feeling like I am helping and supporting people when they may not be feeling their best, and problem-solving by finding solutions, sourcing products, or liaising with doctors and nurses in the wider healthcare team.
When did you start at Cobham Pharmacy?
I officially took over the pharmacy at Cobham Health Centre in December 2019 in partnership with ‘JCL UK Ltd’, who have 40 years’ of experience in the pharmacy sector, owning Lalys Pharmacies in Hampshire, and valuable wholesale capabilities. A pharmacy chain was selling a number of its locations, I looked at a few of them and Cobham was the one that appealed to me at the most.
Have you got any particular areas of interest/specialism?
Working in Cancer Services at St Peter’s Hospital for over a year was a hugely insightful and, at times, moving experience, but my ambition now is to provide the highest standard of pharmacy services in a community setting. Meeting such a variety of needs can be a challenge, but it is exceptionally rewarding when you feel a valued part of a local population.
