Josh started his pharmacy career within a supermarket pharmacy chain where he completed his medicines counter assistants course and then his dispensing assistants course. From here Josh went onto Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital to start as pre-registration pharmacy technician in 2009. On completion of these two years, Josh then returned to the community pharmacy where he has worked for a global pharmacy chain in various roles. These roles have included being a pharmacy technician in a walk in pharmacy, being in a care services pharmacy which meant dispensing medication in an MDS format for several care homes, completing his accuracy checking course, becoming an assistant manager for another care services department and currently going back to a walk in pharmacy to train to manage his own pharmacy and store.
