Evaluating the impact of a dedicated Clinical Pharmacist in the first SHSCT – managed GP Practice

Aim:Following the departure of all GP Partners from Bannview Medical Practice in October 2016, there was a period of a year in which medical cover was provided solely by locum doctors. In January 2017 SHSCT assumed management responsibilities for the practice. In the months that followed, a practice-wide audit highlighted potentially serious safety risks in relation to prescription management and overall medicines governance (figure 1) . A huge budget overspend was also identified, largely due to poor prescribing.
