Specialist pharmacists

A team of specialist pharmacists is providing expert care and advice to patients living in Portsmouth

The team of seven work in GP practices and in the community to deliver direct care to patients with mostly complex health conditions.

Each pharmacist has been trained to specialise in one of these seven areas:

  • Breathing conditions
  • Heart disease
  • Mental health
  • Pain management
  • Diabetes
  • Learning disabilities
  • Frailty

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care Board is funding the team to better support patients and reduce demand on primary care services across Portsmouth.

Referrals to see a specialist pharmacist are made through GP practices.
