Personal profile


I am a local graduate with 25 years experience in community pharmacy. My prime interest is in pharmacy practice and the complexities of patient care especially communication with patients, carers and other health professionals. I am a mental health researcher and currently investigating the self-reported effects of medications and the importance/significance of these to patients. I am also an accredited Mental Health First Aid Instructor.
