Patients in the West Midlands are set to benefit from more convenient trips to the GP with the announcement by NHS England of new, surgery-based clinical pharmacists to help with routine medication and treatment.
Clinical pharmacists work as part of the general practice team by providing expertise on day-to-day medicine issues and providing consultations with patients directly.
Solihull CCG has been selected for Wave 2 of the IAPT Early Implementer Programme. The bid which was submitted by Solihull local authority leads in mental health services is around improving the psychological health for people with diabetes and respiratory conditions.
Solihull residents are being urged not to leave it too late to order and collect repeat prescriptions before the Easter holidays. Running out of daily medication could have serious consequences for patients who rely on them to control heart and breathing problems.
