How long have you been in your pharmacy role?
I came to James Cook pharmacy in September 2019.
I had no prior experience in pharmacy but saw the student pharmacy technician role advertised and thought it looked interesting, so applied and was offered a position.
Since then, I have completed the two years as a student and secured a place as a progressive pharmacy technician.
I have been in this post for over a year, working in different clinical areas and working towards becoming a medicines management pharmacy technician.
Tell us something about your role people might not be aware of…
Pharmacy technicians work as part of the wider multi-disciplinary team in clinical areas to contribute to safer care for patients, as well as their responsibilities in the dispensary setting.
There is an opportunity to rotate through different areas and expand your knowledge base and experience, before qualifying as a medicines management pharmacy technician and specialising in a specific area.
What do you like about working at South Tees in pharmacy?
I love the learning opportunities I have had, and the contributions we can make to safe, effective and high-quality patient care.
