I did 2 weeks work experience at a chemists. I mainly assisted the chemist in preparing patient's prescription and medication, picked up prescriptions from clinics for the chemist and sorted out the store room, can anyone help me exaggerate those points for my personal statement? I'm not that very creative.

I would imagine that these tasks, and shadowing the pharmacist, gave you an insight into the role that pharmacists play in healthcare, and how wide it is, from assisting people who need advice on over the counter medicines to answering queries about how and when to take drugs, and checking prescriptions with prescribing doctors where they were unclear.
Assuming you want to be a pharmacist or some other healthcare role...it will have given you an insight into the social side of medicine, or convinced you that pharmacy is something you would enjoy and be good at? Perhaps you appreciate the importance of a rigorous approach to checking that prescriptions are correct, of the importance of systems for assuring that the right drugs are given to the right people and they know the right way to take them.
Don't think of it so much as exaggerating, but about saying 'I did this' then 'this is what I got out of it - this is why it's relevant to what I am applying to study'
