Pharmacy teams consistently go above and beyond in order to keep the people they see happy and healthy. We have been reaching out to our members and have asked them to send through stories of when a member of their team has provided exceptional service which has had a real impact on someone’s life. Our aim is to both celebrate the incredibly dedicated pharmacy teams in Scotland and to highlight what a varied and rewarding career this can be.

We’ll be posting these stories periodically and we hope you enjoy!
