The pharmacy show’s pledge to the GP pharmacist and independent prescriber

Many GP practices already employ pharmacists in patient-facing roles, but the aim of the pilot is to populate every region in the UK (an additional 1,500 clinical pharmacists in general practice by 2020/21), to allow GP practice based pharmacists to bridge the gap between secondary care, primary care and community pharmacy.

The Pharmacy Show 2017 had a heightened focus on supporting both the GP Pharmacist and Independent Prescriber to help them quickly identify challenges and discover the opportunities. We partnered with the PDA, PCPA and the NAPC to create the brand new Primary Care Pharmacy conference so GP practice based pharmacists have a common place to come together to network and get all the information they need to move forward with this exciting new opportunity. See the story unfold at the Pharmacy Show.

“This is an exciting time for Pharmacy and the creation of development of these roles are essential to alleviating primary care pressure and it’s incredible to see the power of pharmacy realised. We’ll committed to supporting the profession through this next phase of evolution” Mathew Butler, MD of Healthcare, CloserStill Media

With more than 480 people attending the new conference stream and over 300 GP and Independent Prescribers joining the visitor ranks, the event has been hailed as invaluable training pathway for the profession.

“It’s been incredible for me to come here, I’ve sat in sessions that have given me
invaluable information that I wouldn’t have found for surfing the web and I’ve met fellow GP Pharmacists and even a few GPs which may result in a future collaboration”
