PRESCRIPTIONS FOR THE CONTRACEPTIVE PILL
The combined contraceptive pill can only be issued by Park Crescent Health Centre via a consultation with one of our nursing team. This is because the pill is not suitable for all women and we need to ascertain every 6 months that it is still the safest and most appropriate form of contraception for you and to allow us to monitor your blood pressure as occasionally this rises whilst taking the pill.
Clinical Pharmacists are highly qualified health professionals who train for many years to become specialists in medicines and how they work. They can work directly with you, as part of the general practice team, to make sure your medicines help you get better and stay well. Having a clinical pharmacist in the practice team means you can be treated by the best professional for your needs. All pharmacists are registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
Karen started with us in March 2018 and has quickly become a key member of the team. Karen is focusing on ensuring that patients medications are appropriate and reviewed on a regularly basis.
Calvin started working for the practice in 2020, and works as part of the PCN Pharmacy Team. Calvin's workload does also involve offering some day to day appointment for patients to conduct medication reviews.
