The clinical pharmacist is a specialist in the area of medication and health prevention.
They can work directly with you as part of the GP practice team to make sure your medicines help you to get better and stay well. This means that you won’t always see your GP for your medicine reviews as these can be carried out with the clinical pharmacist, saving you having to wait for a GP appointment.
The clinical pharmacist can also advise of any changes that are needed to your prescriptions or any changes that you may need to make to your lifestyle to keep you well. They can also monitor some diabetes and heart medications.
