Clinical pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians are increasingly working as part of general practice teams. They are highly qualified experts in medicines and can help people in a range of ways. This includes carrying out a variety of health reviews for patients with ongoing health problems and improving patient safety, outcomes and value through a person-centred approach. Our PCN Pharmacy team look at maximising benefits while minimising risks associated with medications.
Having clinical pharmacists in GP practices means that GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions. This helps GPs to manage the demands on their time.
This pharmacy service offers patients a convenient appointment with the right expert health professional for their needs which is really benefiting patients. Appointments are longer in length between 15-30 minutes and you can typically be seen sooner than if you were booking to see a GP.
Contact your GP practice and request an appointment from the reception team.
