Senior Clinical Pharmacist, Nottingham City GP Alliance and Grange Farm Medical Centre
I am a Senior Clinical Pharmacist at the Nottingham City GP Alliance and Grange Farm Medical Centre in Bilborough, Nottingham. I accidently fell into pharmacy due to my pushy chemical engineer uncle, and then proceeded to graduate at Aston University, taking a little longer than the time allocated to do so. After 15 years in the community pharmacy sector, working in a variety roles from LPC representative, branch pharmacist, pre-registration tutor through to regional and professional roles, I decided to be born again as a prescribing pharmacist by completing my IP course with help of NHS England and Bob at Keele University. Over the last 18 months after an initial bout of imposter syndrome I have worked as an Integrated Urgent Care Pharmacist at NHS 111 and am currently working as a Senior Clinical Pharmacist at Grange Farm Medical Centre in Bilborough and at the Nottingham City GP Alliance, where I lead a team of prescribing pharmacist delivering extended hours appointments and other services to support patients and practices across the City. I have been involved in launching a new city-wide smoking cessation service, developing a pilot for a ‘Virtual Atrial Fibrillation Clinic in conjunction with the local academic health science network, targeted patient discharge reviews and pain management reviews. I am also involved in recruitment and providing mentoring support for the new cohort of primary care network pharmacists across the city and county. In my spare time I double as a football coach and taxi driver for my children, and make as many trips back to my home town of Manchester to watch the Treble Winning Champions of England. I also love reading, travelling, playing chess and dancing the night away. I am passionate about patient care, the pharmacy profession, and inter professional collaboration. I believe in a unified profession, where we are stronger together and weaker alone.
