This is the third in our short series of podcasts on Pharmacists and PCNs. In this episode Ben talks to Paul Deffley, a GP partner in Hove who is also a Clinical Director of Practice Unbound, a not-for-profit organisation based in Brighton which aims to help general practice “work smarter”. Paul has considerable experience of working with pharmacists and introducing them into networks of practices. He explains the three key steps practices should take to successfully implement a pharmacist and discusses the challenges for them working across multiple practices.
