Helen is a Pharmacy technician who has been with CMM for 15 years. (although she feels sure she has been saying that for the last 15years).
She started in Boots the chemist as a chemist counter assistant at age 18 and found she was fascinated by the grandeur associated with the important work that was going on up the two little steps in the pharmacy.
From there she had found her calling - not so much with the pills and potions, but she loved the computer software she used. It started as a label system and and eventually it could endorse the FP10 for you.
Eventually, she took a job in Goodmayes Hospital as Supervisor of what was called ‘The Pill Box’ - at the time trail blazing the now popular outsourcing that’s done with outpatient pharmacy in many hospitals. Then finally a house move saw her take a locum role at the Princess royal hospital in Farnborough and she was introduced to CMM (JAC at the time).
She helped train staff on the upgrade from the DOS to Windows version and loved every second of that. When a role was advertised in the chemist and druggist for a CMM trainer, she was sure the advert was written for her.
Her career went: Customer Services - Project Manager - Senior Project Manager - Programme Manager and Head of Programme. She loves change and loves the NHS and the improvements and work life balance that introducing our product to hospitals can bring. She has a team of great project managers and together she delivers a service that she is proud of.
In her spare time she loves spending time with her family and travelling; but if she gets a chance, then a weekend PlayStation session is a real indulgence!
