Clinical Pharmacist

Working alongside GPs to meet patients' needs.

Clinical pharmacists work in primary care as part of a multidisciplinary team in a patient-facing role to clinically assess and treat patients using expert knowledge of medicines for specific disease areas.

They will be prescribers, or if not, can complete an independent prescribing qualification following completion of the 18-month Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) pathway.

They work with and alongside the general practice team, taking responsibility for patients with chronic diseases and undertaking clinical medication reviews to proactively manage people with complex polypharmacy, especially for the elderly, people in care homes and those with multiple comorbidities.
