In 2007, Suzanne moved to work as Prescribing Support Pharmacist at NHS Kirklees. In this role, she was able to get experience of working in many GP practices spread across a large geographical area, covering a range of patient demographics. She enjoyed working, sharing knowledge with and learning from members of the multidisciplinary team working within the practices.
