Pharmacy Technicians play an important role within General Practice and
complement the work of Clinical Pharmacists through utilisation of their technical skillset. Their deployment within primary care settings allows the application of their acquired pharmaceutical knowledge in tasks such as audits, discharge management, prescription issuing, and where appropriate, informing patients and other members of the PCN workforce. Work is often under the direction of Clinical Pharmacists, and this benefit is realised through the creation of a PCN pharmacy team.
