Our Practice Pharmacists work with patients to ensure that they are using the most effective medication and use it appropriately to manage long and short term conditions. They also manage requests for repeat medications, and review repeat medication regimes for patients on an annual basis. Our Pharmacists are expert medication specialists and provide advice to our other clinical staff on the most appropriate prescribing options.
Practice Pharmacists are available for consultations with some patients who have complex chronic diseases or if you have a query about the medication you are taking.
