Minor Health Issues

 

See the source image

Sometimes GP practices will directly refer patients to their community pharmacist for appropriate health conditions, through the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service.  Once a patient has been referred, the pharmacist contacts them for a face to face, phone or video consultation, and the outcome of this is reported back to the GP practice so that they can see exactly what has been recommended, any treatment given and it all goes on the patient’s record.

If for some reason the patient needs more support, the GP practice picks it back up and arranges for the patient to be seen by another member of the practice team. This saves the patient having to make multiple calls for support and frees up time for GPs to see patients with the most complex needs. Following a protocol our Doctors have designed, our clinical co-ordinators may triage you to a pharmacy if this is appropriate.

  • acne
