Primary Care Expert Advisory Group
I am a registered Pharmacy Technician and have
worked in pharmacy for over 15 years. I started out working in community
pharmacy where I qualified as a Pharmacy Technician and went on to work
in hospital pharmacy.
In 2016, I joined Buckinghamshire CCG’s Care Homes
team as the first Pharmacy Technician in the team. In this role I
developed a medication standards audit tool for systems and processes
review in care homes which focused on reducing medicines waste and
implementing best practice guidance in care homes.
currently work in the Medicines Optimisation Team at the CCG supporting
with General Practice work and have a good understanding of how Primary
Care works. I am the lead for the PCN Pharmacy Technician Network in
Buckinghamshire, and I am committed to championing for the role of
Pharmacy Technicians in Primary Care and highlight the great
contribution Pharmacy Technicians make to the profession.
I look forward
to using my knowledge and experiences to help shape the future of
pharmacy and to support other pharmacy professionals through this group.
also lead the Buckinghamshire CCG BAME Network, and this is something I
am very passionate about. I strongly believe the workplace should be a
diverse and inclusive place where everyone feels like they belong, and
our differences are celebrated and embraced.
