This project aims to upskill community pharmacists and place them within General Practices to support the delivery of patient care. 25 places have been offered to community pharmacists working in Enfield on the following courses:
• Essential Skills for General Practice based Pharmacists
• Independent Prescribers
• Minor Ailments
Training has commenced, and GP mentors have agreed to support the pharmacists on placements in local practices. An audit tool is in development to assess whether participating pharmacists will utilise their new skills in their existing setting.
