Anne Thomson

Primary Care Expert Advisory Group

I am passionate about working in the diverse and dynamic environment of primary care, having spent 14 of my 22-year pharmacy career there.

In my current role I provide leadership for delivery of pharmacy services to the residents across the six Health and Social Care Partnerships within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Services include prescribing support, clinical pharmacy, and pharmacotherapy (within Scottish General Medical Services contract). 

Nationally I am a member of the Scottish Pharmacy Practice and Prescribing Advisors Group, where I lead on improvements in clinical pharmacy. Until recently I was the primary care lead on the Scottish Antimicrobial Prescribing Group, developing a QI programme for UTI, and contributing to guidance and research. 

I am interested in person centred integrated pathways of care and am currently leading on the redesign of discharge pathways with acute and community colleagues. 

Going forward I would like to see us utilise the positive changes to education, training and development to push the boundaries of care we deliver to patients within the multidisciplinary team, and truly advance our practice.
