A recent survey found that almost a third of GPs already employ a pharmacist in their practice and a further 16% are considering this move. The Village Practice is now part of the national NHS pilot to include a clinical pharmacist in our GP practice. The pharmacist will offer patient appointments for long-term conditions such as diabetes or asthma, medicines reviews and other medicines-related support, including discussing side effects.
The pharmacist can also help patients with their medicines following a stay in hospital. Having a pharmacist working at our surgery will increase the available appointments, ease the workload of GPs and provide valuable medicines support.
If you are eligible for an appointment you will be contacted by the Practice.
The pharmacist will be looking at projects to begin with that will include repeat prescribing and medicines reviews.
