Mrs Leanne May


I am an experienced community pharmacist and pharmacy teaching fellow.

I have worked as a pharmacy teaching fellow at Kingston University for the past 10 years, teaching pharmacy practice to undergraduates. I previously undertook the role of MPharm course director for the past 3.5 years.

In addition to this role, I also work part-time in practice as a community pharmacist for Boots.

Further to this, I facilitate training events for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and trainee pharmacists in my role as a CPPE (Centre for Postgraduate Pharmacy Education) events tutor and support UK pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, locally and internationally, to return to pharmacy practice and to the GPhC register as a return to practice tutor.

I have also contributed articles, videos and training modules for a community pharmacy magazine with a focus on clinical topics, revalidation and calculations used in community pharmacy.

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.
