I’ve been qualified for over 30 years, having started with Boots, where I worked both in store and in Head Office for 10 years. After a brief spell with Weldricks, I joined Co-operative Pharmacy (latterly Well), where I worked in Operations as an Area and Regional manager, then in Property and Contracts, and finally as part of the Professional Team. Throughout much of my time I have been involved with numerous LPCs, not just North Staffs & Stoke, where I eventually held the position of Vice Chair for 3 years .
Since leaving Well I have worked with a small regional multiple in an Area Manager and support role, along with doing occasional locums. I am also involved with Sheffield LPC and Cheshire, Warrington and Wirral Local Professional Network.
I have always had a personal interest in services, service development, and the extended role of the pharmacist, and my current position allows me to spread my enthusiasm for these to other pharmacists.
