Pharmacy assistants are exposed to a wide variety of tasks that include working with customers with specialised health and well-being needs as well as personal care and grooming requirements. The role of the pharmacy assistant draws on a combination of skills and knowledge spanning customer service, marketing, dispensing, administration and business management.
The dispensary assistant undertakes an essential role in the dispensing of prescription medicines to the community. Under the direct supervision of the pharmacist the dispensary assistants assists in the selection, processing and labeling of the prescription medicine.
To support this important role Guild Training has developed a range of specialised courses to ensure that dispensary assistants around Australia have the skills and knowledge to work with the pharmacist in dispensing these important medicines.
