The entrepreneurial pharmacist who was inspired to start her own business

Francesca Aaen is a pharmacist consultant and runs her consultancy called Aaen Care. Aaen Care delivers medicines and healthcare-related training, consultancy and advice to both private and public sector providers of health and social care services across the UK.

Francesca has over the years had a number of NHS roles in care services and also throughout the NHS. She is also a member of the Pharmacy in Practice Editorial Board. In this podcast I asked her the following questions:

  • Why did you start your own business?
  • You live in Andorra. Do you enjoy running your business from there and do you get home often?
  • What was it like to write your first prescriptions?
  • What was your experience of working within dementia services?
  • What are your views on the rush for everyone to work in general practice?
  • What aspect of being an independent prescriber do you think pharmacists will struggle most with?
  • Do you think the pharmacists training and supervising pharmacists should be working in practice themselves?
  • How did you discover an interest in coaching?
  • What is your advice to pharmacists joining the register?
  • What does 2020 have in store for you?
