In a wide ranging and varied career, Colin began his career working within sterile production and aseptic services in a number of roles including that of All-Wales Production Pharmacist over a nine year period. This included the setting up and chairing the All-Wales Aseptic Services and Production Pharmacist Group (WASPP), a group that was rebranded to Clinical Pharmaceutics and Technical Services (CPTS) and still exists today. This was followed in 2014 by a ‘stocktake’ of the aseptic facilities in Wales where a report was presented to the Chief Pharmacist Group with the then All-Wales QC Pharmacist.
Colin has honed his leadership skills becoming a Year 2000 Project Manager in Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Clinical Design Lead for Informing Healthcare (now Digital Health and Care Wales) and as Chairman of the Pharmacy Implementation Group (PIG) for the national WellSky pharmacy computer system.
More recently Colin was the Chief Pharmacist for Acute Services at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board having responsibility for all acute Pharmacy services provided from the four pharmacies within the Health Board, situated in the Royal Gwent Hospital, Nevill Hall Hospital, Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr and the new Grange University Hospital which opened in November 2020.
