What we do
Clinical Pharmacists have become increasingly commonplace in GP surgeries in the last 5 years.
In 2015, nearly 500 Clinical Pharmacists were introduced into general practice, with a further aim of having 2,000 in place by 2020/21.
The move was part of a wider expansion of the GP surgery workforce, giving patients better local access to experts to help meet their changing health needs.
The approach allows for a more holistic, personalised service which can make huge differences to the lives of an increasing number of people living with multiple long term conditions.
DDHF employs a team of Clinical Pharmacists to work with the 12 member practices of our Federation, and the 3 Primary Care Networks they also make up.
