“Salus employs a Senior Clinical Pharmacist and five Clinical Pharmacists that operate across a total of 17 of our member practices”
Several GP practices that did not have clinical pharmacists expressed an interest in the pilot project commissioned by NHS England in 2016.
Studies have shown that including a Clinical Pharmacist in the GP Practice Team can:
Reduce the number of unnecessary medicines patients take or prescribe new ones, improving patient outcomes
Save each GP in a practice up to 2 hours every day, by conducting repeat prescription and medicines reviews with patients
Achieve prescribing budget savings, helping GP Practices continue or develop other essential services
