Virtual Pharmacist.

Virtual Pharmacists 💊

We are now using virtual pharmacists to help manage some medication monitoring work. The aim of this is to:

*reduce waiting times for appointments increasing access to healthcare

*improve screenings and diagnosis of chronic and common ailments

*reduce A&E admissions

*reduce the wastage and overuse of medicines

*quality improvements in prescribing

*helping patients get the best out of their medications.

This is a new service which is starting to roll out now; it is likely to affect patients with certain long term health conditions or who are currently prescribed medications which may need altering in line with new prescribing guidance.📞 Patients may receive telephone calls from these virtual pharmacists who will identify themselves. They are fully qualified, trained, insured and registered pharmacists who are working alongside us.
