Clinical pharmacists helping to transform the NHS workforce

GP practices are now invited to apply for funding in the second phase of a successful pilot scheme which offers clinical pharmacists the chance to develop their role in general practice.

The clinical pharmacist in general practice scheme helps recruit, train and develop clinical pharmacists. The first phase saw over 450 pharmacists take part in an 18-month training programme based in 650 practices across the country.

The NHS England led scheme sees clinical pharmacists working as clinicians within general practice teams to help patients manage long-term conditions and multiple medications.
