Farrah has been a member of the NPPG for over 15 years. In 2015 she co-chaired the London NPPG and in 2016 joined the NPPG Committee. She is a member of the Education and Training sub-group and has contributed to several paediatric educational publications including the CPPE Learning @ Lunch Programme and the Foundation Paediatric Pharmacy Workbook. She is also a member of the Research and Publications sub-group, which involves reviewing and adjudication conference abstracts, posters and presentations, as well as reviewing the biannual NPPG research grant award.

Farrah has held various senior roles at Whipps Cross University Hospital and at the Royal London Hospital (both part of Barts Health NHS Trust). These have included leading the Paediatric pharmacy, Medicines information and Formulary management teams. She completed her independent prescribing in 2008.

Farrah also has a passion for education and training; she was a pre-registration tutor for 14 years and for the last five years she has been a member of the GPhC Standard Setting Panel, which is responsible for standardising the pharmacist pre-registration exam in the UK. She has also had significant involvement in the training of junior pharmacists. In 2016 she converted this passion into a more dedicated academic role by becoming a Senior Lecturer at London South Bank University, teaching pharmacology on both the paediatric and adult Non-Medical Prescribing Courses. She has achieved RPS Faculty Membership Advanced Stage 2, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
