Go-live date fast approaching for Medacy’s Oxfordshire Project
Medacy are pleased to announce the launch of a new contract in Oxfordshire. Working alongside the three local GP federations and our partners PSUK, Medacy will be providing pharmacist-led clinical medication reviews to support the local populations.
Our goals are to:
- improve access to healthcare for patients by freeing up valuable GP time and provided face to face medication reviews with pharmacists
- Improve safety
- Improve quality of service by using learnings from the project to drive service improvement
- Decrease costs – GPs are a high costs resource and using pharmacists to complete work previously carried out by GPs make good financial sense.
Medacy know that using highly trained Clinical Pharmacists has the potential to fundamentally change Primary Care for the better. By taking away most of the medication related queries in practice, GPs are free to see more patients improving patient access and satisfaction and improving GP job satisfaction and retention.
