What is a pharmacist?

As a profession, pharmacy wants answers. To a wide range of questions each more detailed than the last. Surely we will find the answers if we continue looking more closely. ‘What is a pharmacist?’ presents a different approach. Rather than looking more closely you are invited to take a step back and look more widely.

As a profession, pharmacy wants answers. To a wide range of questions each more detailed than the last. Surely we will find the answers if we continue looking more closely. ‘What is a pharmacist?’ presents a different approach. Rather than looking more closely you are invited to take a step back and look more widely.

Exploring the workings of the human mind and the formation of identity, our professional history and how key events may have affected perceptions of the pharmacist we learn how we have arrived in the early 21st century.

Understanding how we are perceived today begins with looking at how the public and pharmacists themselves have responded to the questions ‘What is a pharmacist?’

Finally we aim to apply what we have learnt to help us make better decisions now and bring forward a future that pharmacists aspire to be part of.
