Clinical Pharmacists

Our Clinical Pharmacists are here to help you.

Clinical pharmacists work as part of the general practice team to improve value and outcomes from medicines and consult with and treat patients directly. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions, advice for those on multiple medicines and better access to health checks. The role is pivotal to improving the quality of care and ensuring patient safety.

Having clinical pharmacists in GP practices means that GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions. This helps GPs to manage the demands on their time. Please speak with you practice team to find out more

Physiotherapists

Our Physios are here to help you. The vast majority of musculoskeletal first contact practitioners are physiotherapists with enhanced skills. They can help patients with musculoskeletal issues such as back, neck and joint pain by:

• assessing and diagnosing issues

• giving expert advice on how best to manage their conditions

• referring them onto specialist services if necessary.

By making it easier for patients to access physiotherapist, patients will have quicker access to diagnosis and treatment, helping them to manage their conditions more effectively and recover faster, so they can get back to normal life quickly. They will help GPs to manage their workload more effectively and reduce the need for onward referrals. Please speak with you practice team to find out more.

Many of the things that you might think you need to see a doctor about can often be dealt with by nurses, all whom have been trained to deal with some medical problems.

Indeed, for some things the nurse is more experienced at dealing with the problem than a doctor. Routine blood pressure checks, HRT and contraceptive prescribing, minor illness management and management of diabetes, coronary heart disease, asthma and COPD and many conditions come within their expertise.

The practice nurses also run daily triage clinics (triage clinic is a clinic for patients who just feel unwell for one reason or another).
