My case study: How Pharmacist Support changes lives

I’ve written a case study on the difference the charity Pharmacist Support has made to me, to show how donations can transform the lives of pharmacists with disabilities. When I see other people in my situation, I feel very fortunate to belong to a profession that looks after peers who fall on hard times, especially when I see the love for the charity on social media and pharmacists’ fundraising challenges.

It’s a bit shocking how dire things were now I read it back, having written it just after Pharmacist Support scooped me up:

Emily graduated with a first class degree and registered as a pharmacist four years ago. A severe health relapse, however, made finding paid work extremely prohibitive. Covering basic living costs was becoming overwhelming and Emily was finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet. Read the full case study on the Pharmacist Support website

The help from Pharmacist Support has been the catalyst to really improving my quality of life long after the help I received, and you can read more about the difference being able to afford to buy a mobility scooter and getting travel discounts has made:

A few weeks ago I bought a mobility scooter and it’s been life-changing! Here’s a blog about what I’ve been able to do since and how it’s made my world so much bigger and better.

Being awarded PIP at long last has opened up lots of other help. I’ve talked about it on Twitter and this has encouraged friends with disabilities to try applying again too, so I thought I’d blog it.
