Our Team

Liz Dixon – Pharmacist, Managing Director

Owner and your main point of contact at Gilmours. With over 30 years pharmacy experience Liz has expanded her more traditional pharmacist role to include Nutritional and Environmental Medicine studies. Liz is the driver of our positive health initiatives. Always on the hunt for new products that work, Liz applies an innovative approach to pharmacy, delivering solutions backed by science.

Liz loves her job and we can tell. Customers are greeted with a quick smile and always feel part of the team. Whether it’s free advice, a private consultation for one of our many professional services, or a regular old script, she thrives on being busy and involved.


Peter Neal, Chris Sharp and Danielle Maulder – Pharmacists

We are extremely lucky that we have such a great group of pharmacists - a couple of previous business owners, and a young mum - that understand how important it is to look after people well. The pharmacy is always in good hands, with a great depth of knowledge and professionalism.


Sandra Vetter – Retail Manager, Head Buyer

Sandra is the reason why everyone loves Gilmours for gifts. A very talented lady who constantly changes the look of Gilmours. She loves her role so much we sometimes need to remind her to go home at the end of a day!
