Mrs Leanne May


I am the course director of the MPharm course.

I am an experienced community pharmacist and pharmacy teaching fellow.

I work part time at Kingston University as a pharmacy teaching fellow 3 days a week and the remainder of my time is utilised practicing as a pharmacist for Boots and providing training for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pre-registration pharmacists in my role as a CPPE tutor in London. I also write training modules and provide videos for a community pharmacy magazine.

I have a keen interest in utilising technology in teaching and am always looking for new ways to deliver material and keep students engaged and learning.
