Noticeboard

Update: The summer newsletter for Victoria Park Health Centre has been released, check it out by clicking this link: Summer 2016 Newsletter


All our Patients have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. We listen when Patients make us aware of their preference as to which GP that is. If you are registering as a new patient you will see an option to choose, you will also receive a text message giving you the GP’s name, alternatively you can contact the practice if you wish to know who this is.

We have a number of Registrars who are all here on a short term placement. They are fully qualified GP's and are here to gain supported experience in a GP practice setting. This is essential before they are allowed to work unsupported in a GP practice of their own or as a GP in a bigger team.

 

Pharmacists

Mrs Caroline Needham

A clinical pharmacist is an expert in medicines;  a pharmacist is trained for 5 years at university and also during work based placements. Some pharmacists complete further clinical training after qualifying and this may include training to prescribe medicines.

 

Our clinical pharmacists will work with individual patients to make sure the medicines they have been prescribed continue to be of benefit to each patient, taking in to account any changes in symptoms or clinical circumstances. This will be a medication review appointment, patients are encouraged to ask questions about medicines they are prescribed and also those they purchase when they meet with the clinical pharmacist.

As well as seeing patients to discuss their individual medicines the clinical pharmacist will form part of the multidisciplinary practice team providing advice to the doctors and nurses about the best medicines to prescribe for patients who have complex medication needs.
