Pharmacists

As we are part of a Primary Care Network, we have two clinical pharmacists (Yasmin Hoque and Victoria Cunningham) and a pharmacy technician (Andy Whittingham) working with us. Their role within general practice is patient facing to provide clinical medicine leadership both in running pharmacist practice clinics and supporting general practice staff. They aim to:

    • Undertake structured medication reviews for patients facing long term conditions to support patients with their medications to ensure they get the best use of their medicines
    • Improve medicines optimisation and safety to reduce the risk and harm from poor use of medicines with the aim to reduce unplanned hospital admissions
    • Improve antimicrobial stewardship prescribing in line with local and national guidance and recommendations
    • Supporting care home residents formulating care plans to improve medicine management
    • Manage minor ailments by undertaking differential diagnoses within my scope of practice and develop my diagnostic and clinical assessment skills to become a fully embedded clinician with the surgery
    • Provide specialist advice to other pharmacist colleagues in other sectors
