This takes the total number of pharmacists recruited under the scheme to more than 1,100, working across over 3,200 GP practices covering over 40% of the country, NHS England said in an announcement on Wednesday (January 10).
The expansion of the programme follows a 2015 pilot where NHS England recruited an estimated 490 pharmacists across 650 GP practices.
Announcing the latest recruitment wave, NHS England director of primary care Dr Arvind Madan said: “The clinical pharmacist programme has proven to be a hugely popular with practices, patients and pharmacists themselves.”
Another wave is on its way, with NHS England taking applications from GP practices until January 19.
