“It was an honour to meet him and talk him through the role of pharmacists as an integral part of every local health service, and it is really important to illustrate this to the public. We are more than just dispensers. We support patients in different settings, advise on health issues and build good relationships with other health professionals, including GPs, nurses and hospital staff, which is important. I appreciate all the support I have received so far from being in this competition”.
