What does a Pharmacist do?
A Pharmacist provides specialist help and advice on the use and appropriate dosage of medication and medicinal products. They will also advise other healthcare professionals on the effects of drugs, medication, creams, ointments etc. and give patients information on how to use their prescription effectively. Pharmacy jobs come with terrific opportunities for career growth and development as well as the ability to specialise in certain areas of medicine.
Daily tasks for professionals in pharmacy jobs can vary according to what setting the pharmacist/technician is working in. For example, a community pharmacist would be likely to:
Give specialist advice to their local community
Organise and sell over the counter prescriptions
Explain to customers how to use their prescription
Visit patients and provide prescriptions to local nursing homes
Check and replenish stock levels within the pharmacy
Whereas a hospital pharmacist might be expected to:
Perform progress checks with patients on wards
Advise hospital staff on correct use and dosage of drugs
Purchase, inspect and distribute medicines around the hospital
Mix drugs and medications to create treatments
To undertake pharmacy roles, you should have studied for an approved degree and taken any other supplementary courses for a career in the field. You also need to possess great personal skills and have a caring nature – patients need to trust you!
