Start pharmacy career as a Locum Pharmacist for the Noel Allen Pharmacy group. As a locum, I got to experience many aspect of community pharmacy which was both good and bad.

Why did you join Star Pharmacy Group?
SPG has a major focus on developing pharmacists into great pharmacists. SPG has a mentoring program for all pharmacists to help them with their day to day duties and to help them grow into what they want to become later in life; whether that may be pharmacy owner, or pharmacist mangers etc. To me, continual growth is important because it prevents pharmacist from getting bored.
