Our Pharmacy Team
What is a clinical Pharmacist?
Clinical pharmacists are highly qualified health professionals who train for many years to become specialists in medicines and how they work. Our clinical pharmacists have also undertaken additional training to allow them to prescribe medicines.
They can work directly with you, as part of the general practice team, to make sure your medicines help you get better and stay well. Having a clinical pharmacist in the practice team means you can be treated by the best professional for your needs.
A clinical pharmacist can help manage long-term conditions, offer advice on side effects, review medications, give advice on common illnesses and ensure you are reviewed after a stay in hospital.
Our clinical pharmacists are employed by the practice through Livewell Southwest to offer this service and will have access to all of your medical notes. The pharmacists are able to either talk to you on the phone or in a face to face appointment. If you come in to see the pharmacist then you be seen in a private consultation room within the Health Centre. Please note face to face appointments are currently only available in the afternoons due to room availability.
All pharmacists are registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
