Clinical Pharmacist

Primary Care Network (PCN) Clinical Pharmacist

My name is Milan and I am the Primary Care Network (PCN) clinical pharmacist that will be working at Plains View Surgery.

I will be working as part of the multi-disciplinary team to meet the needs of patients and provide my expertise with any medicine related queries. I have over 15 years of experience as a practicing Pharmacist and last year I acquired my independent prescribing qualification.  My role is to support patients and the practice by carrying out structured medication reviews for patients on long term conditions and the other areas set out by the NHS England. As part of my responsibilities I will also be supporting the practices to adopt a patient safety theme to promote safe prescribing. The purpose of having a clinical pharmacist in GP practice is to help with any medicines related queries, help with minor ailments, carry out reviews and practice audits and free up time for GPs to see patients that have complex issues or comorbidities.

I am looking forward to helping the teams at Ivy and Plains and improve the patient experience by answering any medicines related queries or prescription queries.
