Benefits of using a digital Clinical Pharmacist service
Save GP time
By giving your patients the option of seeing a Clinical Pharmacist, you could free up over 20% of GP appointments, relieving demand on your workforce.
1 in 4 PCNs are not accessing ARRS funding. Using Push Doctor to provide digital Clinical Pharmacists is completely cost-neutral to your surgery.
Remove recruitment burden
We provide a full managed service, with all recruitment, onboarding and governance of Clinical Pharmacists covered by Push Doctor.
Quick medication reviews
Patients requiring medication reviews can see a Clinical Pharmacist straight away, ensuring they do not have long wait times to see a GP unnecessarily.
Your digital Clinical Pharmacist can provide a service to all surgeries across your PCN. There is no need to find a space within one surgery for them to practice.
