I have been a community pharmacist for 25 years, taking on various roles throughout my career including senior leadership positions. My current role focuses on learning and development of pharmacy professionals for a large multiple community pharmacy. This includes the development of clinical, consultation, reflective practice and leadership skills.
I deliver the training to enable our pharmacists to confidently provide a Travel Vaccination and Health Advice Service in addition to providing this service myself direct to patients in store. I continue to develop my expertise through CPD and attending travel conferences.
My keen interest in travel medicine stems from my love of adventure travel, exploring countries such as Borneo, Malaysia, Vietnam, Nepal and Tanzania. I believe community pharmacy provides a great opportunity for patients to access Travel services and it is rewarding to share my own expertise to develop other professionals in this exciting area of travel health.
