Clinical pharmacists in general practice education come from a variety of backgrounds and bring a range of different skills and experience to their role. Their progression in the role through their training is outlined in a role progression model that focusses on two main types of roles: medicines leadership roles and patient-facing roles.
All clinical pharmacists in general practice education will be supported by clinical mentors and education supervisors, and will use the Clinical pharmacists in general practice role progression handbook to develop their role. Pharmacists will tailor their role progression to the needs of their GP practice and the needs of patient populations. They will focus on the role progression model during Module 1 of their training programme.
