Guest Speaker

2nd February 2023

We had a pharmacist from Cooleman Court Pharmacy come to visit for one of our guest speaker sessions. Members had been putting together lists of their prescriptions and questions about those medications for a few weeks prior, so we were well prepared for our guest and looking forward to comments and explanations. As it turned out, the principal pharmacist, Brad, who we had been expecting, was called interstate at the last moment and a brand-new pharmacist, Ash, was given an hours notice that he was “on”. Ash came prepared to talk about prostate cancer, always topical, and was a bit surprised to be handed a bundle of medications and questions. 

Ash handled the situation brilliantly, abandoning his plan and taking up the new challenge, answering all and sundry question with clear and helpful answers. It was fantastic to see so many men taking so much interest in their health and the treatments that they had been prescribed.

Ash must haver felt like a doctor at a party!

Our many thanks to Ash, and to Cooleman Court Pharmacy for providing this very worthwhile service to the members of the Weston Creek Men’s Shed.
