About

Pharmacists are responsible for supplying medicines to patients and giving advice on correct dosage, explaining how to take prescribed drugs, and discussing any potential side effects.

They ensure that the supply of medicines is within the law and suitable for a particular patient, and will liaise with other healthcare professionals or carers to offer help and advice.

Pharmacists also supervise the medicines supply chain and ensure that pharmacy premises and systems are fit for purpose.
