Lifestyle Medicine

Meet Noelle, our supervising pharmacist. 
Noelle studied pharmacy at Trinity College Dublin where she was awarded the prestigious Foundation Scholarship and she later went on graduate with a distinction in a Masters Degree in Community Pharmacy from Queens University, Belfast. 

More recently Noelle who has a keen interest in the holistic approach to health travelled to London to complete training in “Prescribing lifestyle Medicine”for healthcare professionals organised by Dr.Ranjan Chatterjee & Dr.Ayan Panja. This approach is designed to help patients with chronic health conditions to help themselves through dietary & lifestyle changes & a better understanding of their prescribed medicines.

Noelle loves nothing more than to get to the root cause of the symptom, the why and if we can fix that in a combined approach between lifestyle tweaks, vitamin/mineral supplements and appropriate medicines when needed then that’s a job well done! Sometimes the answer is staring us in the face, but we just haven’t stood still long enough to see it!

If you tick some or all of the following boxes, then maybe you would benefit from a private consultation with our specially trained Lifestyle Medicine Pharmacist:

  • Fed up with the feeling of being on a hamster wheel 24/7 and struggling to get proper down time & sleep & continuously tired no matter how much sleep I get.
  • Not sure what vitamins/supplements I need to take & perhaps there are some that I should not be taking at all.
  • Struggle to know what a healthy diet really is in today’s world.
  • Taking medication, not sure it’s working, not even sure what some of it is supposed to do for me!
  • I would love someone who understands both conventional medicine and the holistic approach to listen to me & walk me through the best options in both for me and my lifestyle.

If you would like to book an appointment for a Lifestyle Medicine Consultation, please contact the pharmacy.There is a fee for this service dependant on the length of consultation which a staff member will discuss with you at the time of booking.

Under normal circumstances, this consultation takes place in the Private Consultation Room at Rosscarbery Pharmacy. However due to current Covid-19 restrictions, a blended approach of sometime face to face and some time on the phone is being used at the moment. 

In 2019, Noelle was awarded the West Cork Businesswoman of the year in the STEM category.
