The Patient’s Association, in partnership with the Primary Care Pharmacy Association, has published A survey of patients and carers views of pharmacists based in GP practices.
The survey found nearly 80% of patients both welcomed the addition of a pharmacist to the general practice team and said that they would welcome a review of their medicines by the pharmacist.
Nearly 80% of respondents also stated that they had better access to services with a GP based pharmacist. 70% felt that they did not need to make an appointment to see their GP after speaking to their pharmacist.
