More pharmacists heading for GP practices

The Department of Health’s plan to develop clinical pharmacy practice through funding places for pharmacists in GP surgeries continues to roll out.

The second wave of 520 applications for the ‘clinical pharmacists in the general practice’ programme has been approved, meaning that an additional 1,061 practices will now benefit from pharmacy expertise, says NHS England.

This is in addition to the 494 pharmacists already working across around 650 GP practices as part of a pilot scheme launched in July 2015. Sites where clinical pharmacists in general practice can be found are listed here.

The deadline for third wave applications is September 29, 2017. The General Practice Forward View committed to over £100 million of funding to support 1,500 clinical pharmacists to work in general practice by 2020-21.
