MEET OUR PHARMACISTS
BILL grew up on the Northern Tablelands in NSW before moving to Sydney to complete a Bachelor of Science at the University of NSW. This led to the completion of a Bachelor of Pharmacy at the University of Sydney with first class honours and the University Medal.
In 2007 Bill moved to Wagga to continue practicing pharmacy in a rural environment. Bill has two children Hudson and Josephine. In 2008 he became a partner across the four Capital Chemist stores in Wagga before they evolved and became the Ruralpharm Group. In 2012 Bill purchased the Amcal pharmacy in Deniliquin from John and Ann Hargreaves. Soon after the pharmacy was rebranded as Soul Pattinson because of its long heritage and strong commitment to professional clinical services.
Bill is passionate about rural health care and regional business opportunities.
Bill believes pharmacy should be innovative in improving healthcare access and reduce health inequity in rural areas. The local pharmacy should also be a strong advocate for primary health care providing consistent, high quality professional services for all customers.
