PCN Pharmacy Team

Clinical pharmacists

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.

PCN Physio Team

The Physios treat a variety musculoskeletal and joint problems within the PCN and have appointments both telephone and face to face.

Hello I am Kyle. I have been working as an first contact practitioner (FCP) just over two and half years now having qualified as physiotherapist in 2015.  I am currently completing further accreditation as a FCP, having just recently completed and passed the first stage.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family including my young daughter and son (and anxiously await my third child soon). I still have a fond love of cricket and continue to play this competitively and I enjoy using the gym to keep me physically healthy.



Hi, I am Beth, I originally started my career in the sport science and medicine field within professional sport clubs, following my successful completion of a BSc in ‘Sport, Health & Exercises Sciences’ at the University of Birmingham and MSc in ‘Sports Rehabilitation’ at St Mary’s, Twickenham. This gave me a valuable background in the musculoskeletal system prior to coming into my NHS physiotherapy employment in 2016. Ever since completing my MSc in Physiotherapy at the University of Essex I have specialised in MSK physiotherapy and have gained a wealth of experience in this field. Now working in the FCP role, I have enjoyed the challenge of utilising this MSK knowledge, but also gaining experience of other medical conditions and their management through working with the wider primary care team. Working with other professionals, such as the social prescribers, has also really added value to what we can provide in this FCP service. I have recently started a post-registration MSc in ‘Advanced Musculoskeletal Practice’ which will allow us to develop the FCP service further over the coming years, so watch this space for new and exciting changes that should benefit everyone within the PCN! Outside of work I am a keen hockey player and regularly go to the gym. Of course I also love socialising with my friends and family!
