My role of GHP executive is as the Recruitment Officer. I develop strategies to increase membership to GHP and also work with Unite the Union to establish strategies to increase membership and provide member benefits. I monitor membership trends and gaps. I also attend Pharmacy conferences where necessary and ensure that supplies of GHP merchandise are created and available in order to raise the GHP profile.
My day job is that of Chief Pharmacist at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, a large 900+ bedded acute trust which includes Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General Hospitals. I don’t think there is an aspect of hospital pharmacy that we don’t provide, we have aseptic services through to radiopharmacy, and everything in between. Always a challenge, always different, that’s what makes it a great job.
