The PCN Pharmacists

The PCN employs two clinical pharmacists, who are qualified to prescribe medication independently.

How can our Pharmacists help you?

The role of the pharmacists include assisting practices, care homes, nursing homes, and community pharmacies with managing medications, improving quality, and ensuring safety. They also support public health campaigns by providing information and guidance to both staff and patients.

The pharmacists conduct medication reviews with specific patients, either in person or over the phone. They focus on patients with heart conditions, those taking multiple medications, and residents of care homes who may need extra support.

Their expertise includes providing guidance on monitoring and managing blood pressure, which leads to better health and quality of life.

Patients can access a convenient tool provided by their surgery for monitoring blood pressure at home (Viso - Blood Pressure at Home). This service is free and has been well-received by our patients.

Who can see the Pharamcists?

They work closely with all nine practices and some care homes to improve patient care. Collaborating with prescribing leads within practices, they directly engage with patients to ensure they receive the best possible care.
