They will be prescribers, or if not, are working to complete an independent prescribing qualification following completion of the 18-month CPPE pathway. They work with and alongside the general practice team, taking responsibility for patients with chronic diseases and undertaking clinical medication reviews to proactively manage people with complex polypharmacy, especially for the elderly, people in care homes and those with multiple comorbidities.
