The role of a Practice Pharmacist
Our practice multidisciplinary team has expanded to include Pharmacists, who work here at the practice alongside the GP's and the rest of the practice team. The role of the pharmacist is pivotal to improving the quality of care and ensuring patients safety. They also allow more time for GP's and Practice Nurses to focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions.
Part of the role of the pharmacist is to contact patients directly by telephone or letter to discuss their medication etc.
