GP Pharmacist

We have a GP Pharmacist starting with us once a week starting Friday 24th January

A general practice pharmacist is a pharmacist who works collaboratively in the general practice as part of the practice team. They support the quality use of medicines through participating in education and training, clinical governance and patient-level activities. General practice pharmacists do not dispense medicines and do not replace the role of pharmacists working in other settings (e.g. community pharmacies or hospitals).

What does a GP Pharmacist do?

A general practice pharmacist can work with GP’s in ways such as:

  • offering advise and answering medicine-related queries
  • patient education including asthma and diabetes education
  • medication review and reconciliation
  • GP Education including updates on new medicines
  • liaising with hospitals, nursing homes and community pharmacies
  • Clinical audits

Medical Students

We would like to welcome our 3 new medical students for 2020. We are looking forward to having them as part of our team and showing them how a medical practice works. You may see them from time to time during your visits to AMC and we encourage our patients to allow medical students to attend some consultations. If you do not want a medical student present during your consultation please let reception or your GP know.
