Clinical Pharmacist

Clinical pharmacists work as part of the general practice team to improve value and outcomes by seeing patients in clinics, telephone consultations and handling all aspects of medication management. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions and advice for those on multiple medicines. The role is pivotal to improving the quality of care and ensuring patient safety.

Having a clinical pharmacist in GP practices means GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions.
