How can pharmacies work more effectively with GP practices?

Healthcare professionals want to make sure their patients benefit from the best care possible and services that will help them enjoy a better quality of health and life. That means it’s very much in community pharmacies’ and GP practices’ interests to work together.

Closer working and collaboration benefits patients. It also benefits the pharmacies and GP practices by helping patients and the public make the best use of the different clinical skills and services available. For example, GP practices can signpost patients to pharmacies for care for minor ailments, medicine use reviews, inhaler technique checks, and more.

Good working relationships with local GPs, practice pharmacists and other practice staff can also make life easier for community pharmacies - for example, around Quality Payments asthma reviews.

Find out how to work more closely with your local GP practices - to maximise pharmacy business and benefit your patients - at our events in November. They are free to attend and open to all pharmacy teams in Greater Manchester.
