PRACTICE PHARMACIST

Kemi Daniels has been with us now for a few months and she works every Thursday. She is very skilled at medication reviews and can answer all types of questions on prescribing and prescriptions.

If the receptionists suggests you see Kemi for a medication review and lifestyle advice, then this is because the practice would like you to do so. She supports us in our prescribing and also helps with audit work and monitoring of prescribing trends.

Practice Pharmacists have now been utilised in many practices nationally over the last few years and are proving to be a very useful resource to practices. You are still free to see the GP for your medication review should you wish, just let the receptionist know.
