There's a great sense of satisfaction in providing primary health care and building rapport with the people in the community where I was brought up.

At the moment I'm working full-time as pharmacist in charge, and part-time at another suburban pharmacy. I oversee daily pharmacy operations such as checking and counselling prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, stock control in the dispensary and shop front, and daily cash handling/banking.  We also provide pharmacy services to aged-care facilities.

For me, the best part of the job is the opportunity to refine my managerial skills through the successes and failures of everyday decisions. I'm also gaining insight into what's involved in owning a pharmacy from the proprietors.
