Hi Chloe,

What does a pharmacist do?

Pharmacists are responsible for: - the quality of medicines supplied to patients - ensuring that the supply of medicines is within the law - ensuring that the medicines prescribed to patients are suitable - advising patients about medicines, including how to take them, what reactions may occur and answering patients' questions.

Pharmacists also:

  • supervise the medicines supply chain and ensure pharmacy premises and systems are fit for purpose
  • advise other healthcare professionals about safe and effective medicines use, and safe and secure supply of medicines
  • respond to patients' symptoms and advise on medicines for sale in pharmacies
  • provide services to patients, such as smoking cessation, blood pressure measurement and cholesterol management
  • supervise the production and preparation of medicines and assessments of quality of medicines before they are supplied to patients from pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Where do pharmacists work?

  • Pharmacists work in many different work environments. These include:
  • Community pharmacies (sometimes called retail or high street pharmacy) and hospitals. Most pharmacists work in community and hospital - pharmacy
  • Pharmaceutical production or sales in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Prisons, primary care organisations, universities in teaching and research, the military, veterinary pharmacy and pharmacy organisations.
