We have been fortunate to have been able to recruit 4 clinical pharmacists for our PCN.
They have been invaluable in their support for our Covid Vaccination hub.
More generally they help the doctors managing any medication related issues.
They are available for phone calls from patients with medication related questions.
They also perform medication reviews with patients and can run some clinics for patients with long term conditions.
Part of our PCN work is to improve care in our nursing and residential homes. The pharmacists are part of the multidisciplinary team who review patients with problems and undertake structured medication reviews to make sure patients are only on the medications they need.
