International Women’s Day 2021: Georgina Boon

Georgina Boon – Lead mental health pharmacist

I’m a pharmacist, and I love the challenge of getting the best out of medication for patients. The teams I work with are wonderful and working in Somerset is fabulous – people are friendly and the views to and from work are world-class!

During my studies I enjoyed chemistry and learning about how drugs affect our bodies, but I didn’t think laboratory work would suit me. Being a hospital pharmacist means I can listen to people’s experiences with medication, discuss different options and use my chemistry knowledge to help decide on the safest and most effective treatment plans. Working in mental health and being able to support people’s recovery journey is a real privilege.
