What today's pharmacists do
Pharmacists are experts in the field of drugs and medicines and may be involved in any aspect of drug preparation and use. That includes the discovery of medicines, finding the best way for drugs to be administered, supplying them to patients and optimising drug therapy.
Many of today’s pharmacists are now qualified to prescribe medicines independently of a doctor and are on the front-line of healthcare provision. They play a pivotal role in supporting patients and improving their health and well-being.
