Hi, my name is Alison Forde. I am currently working as a locum pharmacist in Northern Ireland.
I graduated from Queen's University, Belfast with a First Class honours in Pharmacy in 2006 and completed my pre-registration year with an independent pharmacy in Belfast.
I then moved to Dublin to work with Unicare Pharmacy in one of their busiest stores for over 4 years. During this time I provided diabetes and cholesterol screening along with all my usual duties as a pharmacist.
Feeling the need to travel and experience new cultures I took a year out at this point to travel across Canada.
I returned to Northern Ireland in March 2013 and have since been working as a locum pharmacist. I take great pride in my work and in providing an excellent standard of care to anyone coming into the pharmacy. I have received very positive feedback from the stores I have worked in and I am often requested to return to these stores when cover is needed.
