Insight into Pharmacy

Thu, 13 Jan 2022

This week’s MedSoc focused on careers within pharmacy and students welcomed Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust’s Deputy Chief Pharmacist Hayley Pearson who spoke to students about her role and the challenges of working within the NHS. Hayley was joined by her brother Jacob, a former Thomas Telford student who is now the Lead Pharmacy technician at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals. Both Hayley and Jacob gave students a fascinating insight into their roles and really opened their eyes to the wide variety of careers within pharmacy. The session started with a great quiz which challenged students to guess the costs of widely prescribed medicines and also included ‘A day in the life’ discussion which showed how pharmacists work with other professionals as part of a multidisciplinary team.

A big thank you to Hayley and Jacob for giving up their time to share their experiences and career pathways and well done to the students in year 11 and the sixth form for taking part.  For any students who missed the session, the presentation slides are available on the careers section of the online curriculum.
