Date

About the event

This was an opportunity to hear two different perspectives on the roles of pharmacy technicians in primary care.  The first about local experience from one GP practice, and a strategic perspective from national pharmacy technician leaders.

Why it’s important

Pharmacy technicians are valued and important members of the primary care pharmacy workforce.  There is a need to grow their role, share how pharmacy technicians can work effectively with pharmacist and other colleagues; and make the best use of their knowledge and skills for patient benefit

What you’ll learn

  • Valuable local experience from one primary care pharmacy team about how they are making best use of their pharmacy technicians’ skills
  • A strategic view on the role of pharmacy technicians in primary care
