Mr Syed Hossain


I graduated with an Upper Second Class Honours Masters degree (MPharm) from the University of Brighton in 2016.

Upon completion of my pre-registration training, I worked for Boots as a pharmacist, working in over 50 branches across South London and Croydon. Further to this, I subsequently became a store manager, developing my leadership skills within community pharmacy and being awarded "Area Leader of the Year" in 2018 and 2022.

I am a former senior pharmacist to Her Late Majesty the Queen, in the most distinguished pharmacy in the UK, John Bell & Croyden. During this time, I was responsible for the growth of the business and the pharmaceutical care of the local community within Harley Street and Wimpole Street.

I work as a Senior Deputy Area Manager for Boots with particular focus on pharmacy training in the company. Developing the pharmaceutical roles in the team and ensuring brilliant patient centred care. Responsible for the day to day activities within a "Best of the Best" nominated pharmacy. 

Furthermore, I am an Independent Prescribing Pharmacist having completed my Independent Prescribing Course at the University of Leicester in 2023, specialising in ENT conditions in adults. Since then, I have been working in primary care, running a Minor Ailment Clinic in multiple GP surgeries. 

In August 2022, I was appointed the position of Pharmacy Teaching Fellow at Kingston University.
