Pharmacy Team

Medications are checked regularly to ensure that they are appropriate for patients’ conditions, which improves wellbeing and quality of life. This reduces the likelihood of conditions worsening or leading to other complications and side effects that result in a future need for acute care. Patients can be signposted to our Clinical Pharmacists for appointments that are two or three times longer than a doctor’s due to current GP workload intensity, e.g. 20–30 minutes, which they appreciate.

Our Pharmacy Technician is qualified for patient supporting roles to ensure effective medicines use, through shared decision-making conversations with patients. They can carry out medicine optimisation tasks including effective medicine administration, e.g. checking inhaler technique, supporting Pharmacist medication reviews and medicines reconciliation.
