Who are clinical pharmacists?
In July 2015 nearly 500 Clinical Pharmacists were introduced into General Practice.
This was the first stage of a plan which will lead to 2,000 Clinical Pharmacists in GP surgeries by 2020/21.
Clinical Pharmacists are highly trained experts in medication, having completed a Masters degree in Pharmacy and registering with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
The role is a patient-facing one, providing improved access to specialist medication knowledge.
DDHF employs Clinical Pharmacists who work across our member practices in Durham Dales, all are either qualified as prescribers, or in training.
