PCN Pharmacy Team
PCN Clinical Pharmacists work as a part of the healthcare team to help improve value and outcomes from medicines.
Clinical Pharmacist can help with prescribing, medication reviews, queries about medications, telephone reviews, managing patient long term condition, ensuring patients get the most out of their medication, dealing with side effects.
Having a clinical pharmacist help means GP’s can focus to manage the demands on their time.
The role of clinical pharmacist are different to the community pharmacist. And the main difference is the clinical pharmacist does not give a patient their medication, this need to be collected from a community pharmacy in the usual way.
