Lead Clinical Pharmacist Prescriber

Rachel joined the practice in September 2016 from Leeds Teaching Hospitals where she was Lead Pharmacist for Infectious diseases and HIV.  Clinical pharmacists are highly qualified health professionals who train for many years to become specialists in medicines and how they work.  Our Clinical Pharmacist is part of the general practice clinical team and has a big role to play to make sure your medicines help you get better and stay well.

Rachel is a prescribing pharmacist, who reviews patients with long term conditions such as COPD, diabetes, asthma and hypertension to help them manage their conditions. She also sees all patients who take repeat medication for their medication review, discusses side effects with patients and supports the practice with all aspects of medicines management and prescribing.
