• Clinical pharmacists programme provides a model for wider workforce change

    6 July 2017

    PCC has published a collection of case studies from the clinical pharmacists in general practice programme, illustrating the benefits gained by some of the nearly 600 practices taking part. These include savings of GP time, cost savings and better outcomes for patients, particularly those with complex conditions taking several different medicines a day. PCC facilitators provided development support to ensure the new posts were successfully embedded in the existing practice workforce – an experience that involved practices in collaboration and thinking through the consequences of change, equipping them to deal with other changes likely to come their way.
