Clinical Pharmacist

Rebecca joined the practice in September 2016 from community pharmacy where she worked as a pharmacist manager in Whitley Bay and Peterlee.

Clinical pharmacists are highly qualified health professionals who train for many years to become specialists in medicines and how they work. Our Clinical Pharmacist is part of the general practice clinical team and has a big role to play to make sure your medicines help you get and stay well.

Rebecca is currently training to be a prescribing pharmacist; she reviews patients with long term health conditions such as hypertension, asthma, COPD and diabetes. She also sees patients for medication review, discusses side effects with patients and supports the practice with all aspects of medicines management and prescribing. Rebecca helps patients with their medications when they are discharged from hospital or when they have medicines changed at an outpatient clinic.
