Pharmacy technician Samuel Sankoh is the newest member of the Mercy Hospital team.
In commemoration of World Pharmacy Day, please welcome the newest member of the Mercy Hospital family, Samuel Sankoh, who is a trained and qualified pharmacy technician. Samuel began working at Mercy at the beginning of September. He is excited about the opportunity to contribute to Mercy Hospital’s mission to provide the community with excellent and compassionate medical care.
The work of pharmacists is vital in Sierra Leone, Samuel says. “Pharmacists are really rare in Sierra Leone. We really do not have enough. I would encourage people to consider studying to be a pharmacist or encouraging their children to become one. They are really important. Pharmacists make sure that patients are receiving the correct medications. They have knowledge about how to prevent resistance to drugs, especially antibiotics.”
On World Pharmacy Day, let's appreciate those who have chosen this important work.
