NHS Tayside has been at the forefront of the development of the General Practice Pharmacy role
The service has evolved over the years to become well established, patient centred and maximises the
skills of the professional pharmacy teams. NHST General Practice service is well on the way to meeting
the aspirations of Achieving Excellence and the pharmacotherapy services outlined in the 2018 GMS
NHS Tayside ethos is to allow professionals to develop to be the best they can be within their
Competencies and actively encourages multidisciplinary and multi professional working.
The teams have developed over the years to include the professional pharmacy technician workforce,
we recognised a number of years ago the valuable contribution technicians can make to help patients gain
maximum benefit and minimum risk from their medicines.
Our roles are community based and involve working in a range of environments such as GP
practices, community hospitals, care homes and patients own homes.
The General Practice Pharmacy Service has an excellent peer support network across Tayside and
Scotland, including prescribing support and medicines information networks and excellent links
with pharmacists working within specialist clinical pharmacy areas, such as pain, mental health and
older peoples services. Staff are encouraged to develop their clinical skills.
