Clinical Pharmacist

Video: NHS England invited us to be part of a nationwide case study about clinical pharmacists in GP practices. It features our surgery, where our clinical pharmacist Rachel Hall has been in place for over 11 years. The film explains the role of clinical pharmacists in general practice, clarifying when and why patients might see a clinical pharmacist: Watch video

I worked in community pharmacy and intermediate care before joining the practice full time in 2006 after qualifying as an independent prescriber. My main area of specialism is diabetes but I also see patients with other long term conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, COPD and asthma. I see all newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetics and also those needing conversion to insulin injections. As well as running daily clinics I work as Clinical Manager within the practice.

I am often asked to speak at conferences about this unique role and a case study was included in the Pharmacy White Paper published in 2008. I have also written a chapter about Type 2 diabetes for a pharmacy textbook and am a regular columnist in the Clinical Pharmacist journal. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, skiing, cooking and exploring different countries.
