Clinical Pharmacists

Mr Charles Jenkins - Welsh speaker - (Independent Prescriber)

I am one of two practice based pharmacists at ATP. I studied at UWIST Welsh School of Pharmacy in Cardiff graduating with Honours in 1982. Since becoming a member of The Royal Pharmaceutical Society I have worked continuously in community pharmacy until joining ATP in December 2017. I have owned my own pharmacy business and worked at Lloyds Pharmacy during my career. My continued interest in community pharmacy and for patient centered care has led me to representing pharmacy on both Iechyd Morgannwg and Neath Port Talbot local health boards ensuring new initiatives in patient care have been implemented successfully. I am currently attending University to further my prescribing skills which will be of help to the practice and their patients in the future. My hobbies include skiing and watching rugby In the winter months and enjoying our beautiful Welsh countryside in the Summer. My children are also a major part of my life and visiting them is one of my greatest pleasures.

Mr Mike Williams - (Independent Prescriber)

My career as a pharmacist started with Boots chemist. I have worked for several of the multiple pharmacies either as an employee or as a locum and I have had experience of working as a superintendent pharmacist and as an area manager. The fact is that I have worked in excess of one hundred pharmacies, I have therefore gained a broad base of experience of community pharmacy. however, my longest spell of employment in community pharmacy, was with a local company, Gwynfa’s chemists (gcg). I have also worked for powys lhb and in the primary care sector since 2014. During that time I have been a tutor for the independent prescribing course at the university of wales. I believe that good patient care is the number one priority of a pharmacist. As a practice pharmacist, ,my role is varied and encompasses seeing patients for minor ailments, conducting medicine reviews, medicines reconciliation and to act as prescribing lead for the practice when dealing with Hywel Dda UHB.
