Jesson, Jill K., Wilson, Keith A. and Blenkinsopp, Alison (2002). Primary care pharmacists:a profile. Journal of Social and Administrative Pharmacy, 19 (3), pp. 99-104.


A survey was carried out in 1998 in 43 English health authorities of primary care pharmacists (employed to provide prescribing advice to GPs at medical practice level). 119 responses were received (66%). Most combined working as a PCP with another occupation, usually community pharmacy (57%), hospital pharmacy (13%) or as an academic (7%). 53% of respondents worked 8 hours or less per week as a PCP. Only 18 respondents were employed full-time as a PCP. The most common activities were drug information (91%), PACT analysis (90%), drug cost containment (90%) and review of individual patient medication (88%). (7 refs.)
