Professional background

I am the Lead pharmacy Technician – Procurement and have been in this post since July 2021.

I have worked at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust since leaving school in 2011. I began with a two-year apprenticeship to become a Pharmacy Technician, this involved working in all areas of the Pharmacy Department to gain the skills and knowledge I needed to complete my course.

After finishing the apprenticeship, I obtained a Senior Assistant Technical Office role in the Aseptic Department whilst also working within the Procurement Team.

When a technician role came up within the Procurement Team, I was more than thrilled as I knew this was the area of Pharmacy I wanted to develop more skills within.
