GP Pharmacist

We have a GP Pharmacist consulting Wednesdays and Fridays in our clinics

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
