Building relationships with all our lovely regular customers. You follow them along their health journey through the good and bad (healthy and sick) and having their trust for you to handle their medications and give appropriate advice is very rewarding. And of course in between all that, catching up and having a yarn with all your customers like friends. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗱𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗲𝗹𝘀𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 (𝗰𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗿 𝘂𝗽 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴)?
