Our Pharmacist, Nike can help you with all your medication queries
I am delighted to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you as your new general practice pharmacist. I will be working closely with patients as part of the Tiptree Practice Team to ensure that medicines help you get better and help you stay well, for example I can review your medicines to ensure that they are still working for you, discuss any side effects with you and ensure that the correct monitoring is carried out. If you have recently been discharged from hospital and your medication has changed, I can explain the changes and ensure that you get maximum benefit from these medicines.
Pharmacists in GP surgeries are very new, not just here, but across the whole of the country. In fact this practice is one of the first to have its own clinical pharmacist and is taking part in a 3 year pilot.
During my career I have worked for a number of community pharmacies, including Lloyds and Sainsburys. As well as a degree in Pharmacy, I have a certificate in Medicines Use Review and New Medicines Service.
When work and family commitments allow, I enjoy travelling and can most often be found curled up with a good book
