Personal profile

Theo was awarded a BPharm (Hons) degree from Kwame Nkrumah University in Ghana after graduating with a first class in 1996. Following that, he gained his professional registration and developed a career in pharmacy practice, medical sales, and prescribing support.

In 2005, Theo registered as a practising pharmacist in the UK and developed a practice in community pharmacy as pharmacy manager and occasional locum in different supermarket, multiple and independent type pharmacies. As a clinical pharmacist, he works part-time helping patients to optimise medicines use and supporting their health improvement efforts.
