Pharmacist helping GP surgeries in Sheffield suburb

A pharmacist in a Sheffield suburb is easing the burden on GPs by working in two surgeries to carry out medication reviews.

Pharmacist Tajinder Singh, of Totley Pharmacy, on Baslow Road, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next month, is supporting Baslow Road Surgery and Totley Rise Medical Centre following the launch of the Prime Minister’s GP Access Fund, formerly known as the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund.

It is aimed at freeing up GPs to see more patients.
