More clinical pharmacists set to work in GP surgeries

Further applications for Clinical pharmacists in the general practice programme have been approved meaning more than 520 clinical pharmacists covering 1,791 GP sites will benefit an additional 18.5 million patients.

This builds on the 494 clinical pharmacists already working across around 650 GP practices as part of a pilot scheme. Clinical pharmacists work in general practice teams to help patients manage their medication effectively. This improves the quality of care and ensures patient safety as well as freeing up time for GPs to focus on patients with the most complex health issues. Applications are considered on an on-going basis and the next deadline is 29th September 2017. More information can be found on the NHS England website.
