Look at the medicine guidance (linked in the 'subject specific guidance' in my signature below) - the basic idea is the same, just making your experience specific to pharmacy

Focus on work experiences in the field or on work shadowing. Try to reflect on these experiences and present the skills that you got from these experiences.
You can also talk about a topic that really interests you in pharmacy or even medicine, biology or chemistry, especially if it is in the course curriculum. Do not talk at length about your hobbies or extracurriculars if they are not related to pharmacy.
And finally, avoid clichés.
You can find advices on the general form of your PS here or on youtube. In your case you only have to focus more on work experiences or shadowing activities.
