I graduated from the University of Bath with a Masters in Pharmacy. Prior to joining Spire Bristol I worked in a variety of healthcare settings: academic, community, healthcare surgeries, hospital and managerial roles in the UK and USA. Through my various experiences, I realised that hospital pharmacy is definitely the route for me.
When I became the Head of Pharmacy at Spire Bristol, I discovered the varied role and have really enjoyed the daily interactions with various hospital departments, healthcare professionals and patients. As head of department I manage staffing, lead and develop training, control budgets, complete audits, advise consultants and discuss treatment options, write hospital policies as well as speak to patients prior to surgery and postoperatively. It is a very diverse role, but I relish the challenges that it brings.
In my pharmacy team we aim to provide the best possible pharmaceutical service to our patients delivered in a legal, ethical and moral way. We are all passionate about care and safety; our patients are always our priority concern.
