This is the second in our short summer series of pharmacy-focussed podcasts. In this episode Ben talks to Duncan Petty who runs Prescribing Support Services, one of the largest suppliers of pharmacists to general practice. Duncan, who was one of the first clinical pharmacists to be employed in general practice, explains the prerequisites necessary for pharmacists to work well in general practice, the benefits they bring, how at-scale working impacts on them and how they can deliver prescribing savings. He also explains his vision for the future of primary care based pharmacy.

In the first of two pharmacy-focussed podcasts we talk to Ravi Chal who is a pharmacist and founder of Future Pharmacy, a company which is developing an app to work as a clinical decision support system for pharmacists. In this podcast Ravi explains how the app will work; offering doctors and pharmacists both a dosage calculator and access to the four largest pharmaceutical databases via the user’s phone. Ravi also has a company called Locum Passport; an automated document wallet for locums which facilitates the transfer of personal information between agencies. Ravi also considers how technology will develop within the NHS in the future.

This is the third in our series of panel discussions in which Ben is joined by a panel of renowned national experts. This time we discuss how the new models of care will impact on and change general practice. In this first part the panel considers the impact so far of the Five Year Forward View, closer integration of general practice with the rest of the system, what GPs should be doing now and whether choosing to lessen the independence of general practice would be a good or bad thing.

Part Two will follow next week.
