Our medicines management team 

Our medicines management team has pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and a data analyst. The team is well established and has been in place for a number of years.

The team helps patients by providing them with direct support direct support at their GP practice, in care homes, or by carrying out reviews in their own homes. The team works with colleagues in community and hospital pharmacies so patients are provided with the right treatments across the different services they may be using.  

Raising awareness of a wide range of issues relating to medicines is also an important part of the team’s work. So, members of the team regularly link with patient and community groups to provide advice and to speak to residents about our policies and schemes related to prescribing.

The team has been shortlisted for several national awards such as the HSJ Patient Safety Awards for the an innovative programme they set up to reduce hospital admissions and the HSJ Value Awards for their work on the Repeat Prescription Ordering Scheme (RPOS).
