Primary Care Network - Pharmacist Support

GreenLife Pharma Clinical Services have worked with a number of our clients in helping them recruit capable pharmacists and developing their clinical services. Since 2017 we have been working with one of our clients, Imaan Healthcare, to develop a national training programme for Pre-Registration pharmacists in General Practice. This has involved the recruitment, training, deployment and ongoing training of the trainee pharmacists in General Practice. In 2019, a pharmacist on the GreenLife Pharma programme was recognised as the national Pre-Registration pharmacist of the year at the annual Chemist & Druggist Pharmacy Awards. This was for his work across a GP surgery and a specialist dementia care hub, resulting in a 30% reduction in prescribing for the residents.  GreenLife Pharma Clinical Services have been involved in the consultation with Health Education England to develop the training framework for Pre-Registration Pharmacists in General Practice which eventually went live in July 2019..

GreenLife Clinical Services specialises in training primary care pharmacists who are ready to be deployed into a General Practice setting. Our pharmacists have been trained to undertake a number of clinical tasks which improve patient safety, save on costs and generate increased levels of income for each practice (further details can be found in our brochure).

 

The NHS England funding of £55,670 is expected to cover the entire salary and oncosts of a PCN pharmacist. Alternatively, you would be expected to use the funding to cover the entire salary and the network would be expected to cover the additional on-costs such as the employers’ national insurance contribution and NHS employers contribution.

 

Finding and hiring a suitable pharmacist for your Primary Care Network isn’t always an easy task. A number of GP surgeries have no prior experience with a pharmacist and what practical workstreams they can become involved in. Not every PCN will be the same. Some may have specific needs that are different to another PCN.  GreenLife Pharma Clinical Services can offer you a free consultation to help you explore the individual needs of your PCN and help you devise bespoke workstreams for your network.

 

Our pharmacists are employed by us and have completed pre-employment checks in line with the NHS recruitment standards.

Our team of leading experts are on hand to answer your questions and work with you to design a customised service plan that is right for you.
