The Primary Care Network would like to welcome the clinical pharmacists, who are an extension to the clinical team. Hitesh Tara started in late 2019 and the newest addition, Rajveer Kaur, commenced her role in late 2020.
The clinical pharmacists are engaged in multiple activities and you will most likely interact with them in the form of a medication review. In these reviews, they will ensure the appropriate blood tests and monitoring has been completed for your medication and review your current medication for appropriateness. This is your chance as a patient to have an in-depth discussion about your medication and any questions or concerns. They have a strong relationship with your GP and any suggestions for your care will be as a multi-disciplinary approach.
Both the clinical pharmacists are part of a nationwide training program for clinical pharmacists in general practice. Towards the end of this pathway, they will look into specialising in a clinical area for long term management of care. Hitesh currently has an interest in anticoagulation (blood-thinning) and Rajveer is yet to choose her area to upskill in. Both Hitesh and Raj look forward to hearing your feedback to their newly appointed roles in the practice, which will form part of their training.
