CLINICAL PHARMACY TEAM
Our Pharmacy Team work closely with our member practices and our Care Homes Team to optimise the best medicines for patients by carrying out Medication Reviews, ensuring prescribing is patient focussed, safe and following the latest guidelines to produce the best possible patient outcomes.
The Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) whereby 111 and practices can refer patients to a community pharmacy near them for minor illness and injury is being rolled out across England. The pharmacy team will link with our local community pharmacies to maximise use of this service.
SPECIALIST MENTAL HEALTH ADVICE
Our Specialist Mental Health Practitioner (MHP) is available to support and advise the practice teams on mental health in the context of complex patients, signposting, referrals to mental health teams and services, and teaching.
The MHP focusses on complex or stuck patients who fall between the current remit of services such as IAPT (Healthy Minds) and those who are cared for by Community Mental Health Teams. The aim is to intervene at an earlier stage before patients reach true crisis point and support them to maintain health in all aspects, support to readjust imbalances in physical health and in doing so hopefully increase the life expectancy of those with mental illness.
