An emerging model of care delivery involves utilising the skills of pharmacist in GP practices.
Pharmacists working as part of the team in general practice can make a huge difference to both patients and clinical colleagues. You will consult with and treat patients directly, working closely with GPs to resolve medicines issues, and enabling them to focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients. You will review patients’ medicines and provide advice on how best to take them.
As part of the multidisciplinary team, pharmacists are able to advise other professionals about medicines, resolve problems with prescriptions and reduce prescribing errors.
