I have been working as Head of Pharmacy for PCT Healthcare since November 2018, after many years working in various different operational management roles in community pharmacy. This gives me the opportunity to further support the pharmacy teams and ensure we are well positioned to give the best possible customer experience in all of our pharmacies every day.  I joined Community Pharmacy almost 25 years ago through a passion to help people, and see Community Pharmacy as a great resource to support the health of our local population.  Out of work I enjoy travelling and spending time with my two children (Lottie,6 and Louie,4) who keep me on my toes!

Lindsey Fairbrother   

Lindsey is a LPC member and an Independent representative.

My whole career has been in pharmacy but with a wide variety of roles and experiences. After a typical start as a pre-reg and pharmacy manager for a multiple, I took on a variety of jobs, ranging from professional development through training others and offering medicines optimisation to GP practice, to a much more commercial role, ultimately controlling the buying and wholesale operations for the chain.

In 2008, I took employment with Shropshire Local Pharmaceutical Committee in order to re-establish my understanding of local and national pharmacy issues. Being flexible at the time I was also able to take a role of Non Executive Director at South Staffordshire PCT, which gave me valuable insight into commissioning and NHS structures.

Then a further change setting up my own new contract pharmacy, in Hatton, South Derbyshire, which I have actively run since 2010. With a consistent locum releasing me 2 days per week, I have retained my Shropshire LPC role which is invaluable in giving me the opportunity to find out what is going on and to support fellow contractors.

I am not one to stand still, having recently qualified as an Independent Prescriber. In order to grow confidence, I took a role one day per week in a GP surgery. Having lasted 14 months, with only Sunday as a day off, I then felt able to leave that position in order to set up services within my own pharmacy to utilise my new skills.

I am delighted to now join Derbyshire LPC as an independent contractor representative.

I am very committed to helping other pharmacists and working together to give all professionals and patients the best pharmacy future. I want the NHS to realise that pharmacy is the ultimate ‘walk in centre’ and that we could do so much more if only remuneration structures were in place to resource us. The future of pharmacy is not a bleak one but to make it bright we have to shout about what we do and give all our colleagues the confidence to feel proud and believe they can deliver. Local pharmacists can often feel very isolated. As an LPC we need to tell them they are not alone and support our LPC officers to continue providing strong local leadership.
