You’ll be legally required to maintain prescription files and recording medications of the patients you dispense medicine to, as well as ensuring the correct dosage is given.
You’ll also be supervising other staff such as pharmacy technicians and sales assistants.
Each institution has its own entry requirements but in general:
NSC / NC(V) with a Bachelor’s Degree pass
Recommended Subjects: Life Sciences.
Pharmacists can be employed either at hospitals, clinics, by retail pharmacy companies or go into private practise by opening up their own pharmacies.
