About the job
“Pharmacy is such a varied area to work in; some people think pharmacists just stick labels on boxes but there’s a lot more to the role than that! Advising healthcare professionals and patients on effective treatments to manage conditions is interesting and rewarding.”
Pharmacists are experts in medicines; their knowledge of medicines and the effect they have on the human body is critical for managing medical conditions. The role of a pharmacist is varied and can include advising doctors and nurses on how to choose medicines and use them correctly, ensuring that new medicines are safe to use with other medication, advising on dosage and suggesting the most appropriate form of medication such as tablet, injection, ointment or inhaler, and making sure that patients use their medicines safely.
