There have been pharmacists working in GP practices so some time. However, the last 12 months has seen significant investment by NHS England in GP practice pharmacists. In addition, individual practices and GP federations are realising the potential of engaging a practice pharmacist. The rationale for employing a practice pharmacist falls into three categories:

1. Improving access

2. Improving quality

3. Improving prescribing efficiencies

Access

Pharmacists can complete many of the medication-related tasks tradtionally carried out by GPs. This frees up more GP time for the patient facing roles which improves access for patients.

Quality

Pharmacists are ideally placed to ensure that prescribing choices follow best practice guidance and that they are followed in practice via robust medication review processes and clinical audit.

Efficiencies

Very small, non-clinically significant changes can save the NHS a small fortune e.g. pregabalin dose optimisation. Making sure that this is happening in practice is part of the Medacy pharmacists day. In practice, a Medacy Pharmacist can do all three roles as part of their role, keeping the practice, patients, CCG and CQC happy.
