Pharmacy Team

Health board pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are becoming more involved in the care of
patients in General Practice. Having the pharmacy team working in GP surgeries provides valuable
medicines support, a close link with community pharmacy teams and allows GPs to focus their skills
and time where they are most needed for patients who have more complex needs. Pharmacists are
experts in medicines and can talk to you about how to get the best from your medicines.
Pharmacy Hub team

To further support GP practices, a new service is being launched to implement a remote pharmacy
hub, which will be based within Stoneyburn Health Centre. This service will predominately deal with Hospital Discharge letters and again be staffed by a central pharmacy team with advanced clinical skills.
Our hub team may contact patients to discuss medication changes relating to recent hospital
discharges. As this team are based out with the practice at Stoneyburn Health Centre, the telephone
number used to contact patients will differ from the practice telephone number.
