NHS England will exceed 1,500 ‘clinical pharmacist’ target, GPs say

NHS England is set to exceed its target to recruit “clinical pharmacists” by 500, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has predicted.

The RCGP said feedback from GPs on the role has been “incredibly positive”, and suggested practice pharmacists can have a significant impact on GP workload.

It called for an “increase [in] the number of pharmacists available in general practice, particularly across groups of smaller practices where the pharmacist’s time will otherwise be spread too thinly”. The current ratio of clinical pharmacists working at a scale of one to 30,000 patients “should be reduced”, the college stressed.
