About the event

In this webinar, Rory discussed some of the challenges around prioritising clinical workload in a busy GP practice, as a practice pharmacist. Although the focus was on clinical workload, Rory also commented on juggling his patient-facing time with other duties within the practice. Rory gave a personal view on how he prioritises his own work along with ideas for listeners to consider in their own practice.

Why it’s important

If you are new to primary care or considering a change, it’s good to hear from someone who has been through the experience and is sharing the lessons learned.
