Become more valuable to your PCN and impact patient lives

Start delivering safe and efficient SMRs 

SMRs are now a requirement for PCNs and Pharmacists are expected to deliver them, but are we trained to do them?

Structured Medication Reviews (SMRs) are now a requirement for PCNs and Pharmacists are expected to carry them out. The problem arises when Pharmacists are not adequately trained or supported to conduct the SMRs. This can lead to unnecessary distress for the Pharmacist and can put patient safety at risk. This can also cause delays in achieving results. 

We can solve this problem with our online training programme. 

DES-SMR Training Programme

Our team of experienced Clinical Pharmacists has worked together with Danny Bartlett who is one of the first PCN pharmacists who currently works within West Sussex CCG and has trained and supported other PCN pharmacists within his CCG to deliver SMRs.

The DES-SMR training programme will equip the Pharmacist with the right skills and knowledge to start delivering SMRs in practice within their competency.
