I am the Clinical Pharmacist at St Michael’s Hospice and I love my job. I work closely with the multi-disciplinary team and feel like I have real input into patient care in the In-Patient Unit and in the community. My job involves keeping patients safe, but also making sure we are following national and local guidance.
I am part of the Medicines Optimisation Group which really allows to me to have an oversight of all aspects of Medicines Management at the Hospice. I am able to share good practise as I also work at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust as the Lead Pharmacist for Palliative Care, and the Clinical Pharmacist at St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Eastbourne. I really enjoy working in a very caring and compassionate team, and feel I am constantly involved in change management. I hope to develop my role further over time at the Hospice.
