In my role as an Assistant Technical Officer in the stores area of Pharmacy, I take receipt of medicines from delivery drivers and make detailed notes of such things as how many items are received and their expiry dates, so it is important to always rotate stock as medication can be very expensive and this helps to prevent costly waste. I also load goods onto rollers so that when the dispensary staff need to complete prescriptions they have a ready supply of what they need.

The role of Nursing Assistant in Accident & Emergency (A&E) is vital. They are a lynchpin for the patients who are very anxious when they first arrive and the Nursing Assistant can spend time with them, explaining the department and assisting with preparing for a physical examination. They will also carry out baseline cardio-vascular observations and escort patients to Imaging for scans.
