Below you can find a little bit about how our Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians work independently and as part of a team on a daily basis.

Pharmacist

We employ Pharmacists with a wide range of experience and skills. In primary care, pharmacists advise patients on the safe and effective use of their medicines. They carry out in depth medication reviews, reduce medication burden and improve patient outcomes. Our pharmacists also offer advice to healthcare professionals concerning all aspects of medication including guideline and formulary queries. Some of our pharmacists are Independent Prescribers and are able to make clinical decisions regarding patient care as well as remove workload from GP’s and other healthcare professionals.

 

Pharmacy Technician

Our Pharmacy Technicians are experts in systems and processes. They update the patient record following a hospital discharge or clinic visit to ensure the medication list is correct and can query and resolve any issues. They support our Pharmacists and carry out medication updates and changes by following robust standard operating procedures.
