I qualified as a Pharmacy Technician in 2001, with my training centred in an acute general hospital pharmacy. I gained in-depth knowledge and experience of in-patient, out-patient and take-home medication dispensing, as well as ward supply, stock control and extemporaneous dispensing of medicines. I qualified as an Accredited Checking Technician in 2006 which led to a higher level of responsibility within the dispensary environment and beyond. I spent several years within an Aseptic Unit, transcribing chemotherapy prescriptions, and preparing and manipulating cytotoxic medication for IV and intrathecal use.
As a GPhC-registered Pharmacy Technician, I support academic staff with the teaching, assessment and preparation of materials for various teaching strands within the MPharm course.
