Meet Francis, your local pharmacist working in Stifford Clays Medical Centre.
The primary care team is widening, gone are the days of a lone GP, now there are many more healthcare professionals working within the GP practice. This is part of the NHS’s GP Five Year Forward View.
There is a real benefit in seeing the right healthcare provider for your condition. In the last year the CCG has introduced Physician Associates, Paramedics, Social Prescribers and IAPT Long-Term Condition Therapists.
Introducing Clinical Pharmacists!
Clinical Pharmacists are trained healthcare professionals who provide a wide range of services including medicine reviews to check you are taking your medicines correctly, long term condition management, support for staying well, stopping smoking and much more. When a pharmacist joins a GP practice, they add even more value by supporting the practice and offering healthcare advice on routine healthcare issues.
