How can you prepare for a role as a GP pharmacist?

C+D spoke to NHS England clinical lead Ravi Sharma to get his top tips for applying for a role in a GP surgery.

In 2015, NHS England began a pilot scheme to recruit an estimated 450 “clinical pharmacists” across 650 GP practices. In January 2018, NHS England said more than 1,100 pharmacists had been recruited under the scheme so far, working across more than 3,200 GP practices and covering more than 40% of the country.

C+D's clinical editor Kristoffer Stewart spoke to Mr Sharma at the Clinical Pharmacy Congress in London last month (April 27), to get his advice on how to prepare for a role in practice pharmacy.

From prepping your cover letter to getting to know the specific GP surgery you are applying to, watch the video below for Mr Sharma's top tips.
