What is your current role?
I work with healthcare professionals across the South West of England to create awareness and provide information on Pfizer’s portfolio of anti-infective medications and support them in providing treatments for their patients.
A typical day involves meeting with healthcare professionals in a hospital setting; either 1:1 or doing a presentation to a group. I present on the disease area, trial data on the medicines and its relevance to their clinical practice. I work very flexibly, plan my own schedule and often work from home on my other projects for the business.
I really enjoy when I hear about positive patient outcomes that have come as a result of the information and support I have provided.
