PRACTICE PHARMACIST, LAURA SCOTT
PHARMACY TECHNICIAN, LINDA JAMIESON
The Pharmacy team work in the Practice Monday to Friday.
Our Pharmacist supports the GP’s dealing with many factors surrounding medicine prescribing.
The Pharmacist will also see patients from time to time if required and oversees specialised drug monitoring in the Practice.
Patients can now sign up for Serial Prescribing, which means that we will agree and dispense a full year’s worth of your repeat prescription medicine.
This means that you no longer have to order via the Practice as the Pharmacist will
have this ready for you each time you are due to renew your supplies.
Speak to LINDA or RECEPTION about signing up.
