Easing pressure on general practices As part of the General Practice Forward View document, the number of pharmacists employed in general practices (GP) is set to increase vastly. With this in mind, Valley Northern is determined to equip these pharmacists with the right products and ensure their days run as smoothly as possible.

GP’s are a key figure in the community offering advice, support and treatments to their many patients.  Valley Northern are determined to equip them with the right products to help ensure their days run as smoothly as possible.

Many GP’s have a full-time pharmacist based there, offering an extra service to its patients. “We see a full-time pharmacist in general practice as an essential part of our workforce,” says Caroline Jewels, Managing Partner at the Sands End Health Clinic in Chemist and Druggist magazine.  She initially hired a pharmacist to ease the workload on doctors without reducing the quality of patient care.

The product ranges we provide at Valley Northern equip both the pharmacists and the doctors alike.  We appreciate that time is a valuable commodity in general practice.

We also have a large range of high-quality disposable paper products, helping ensure cleanliness and hygiene between consultations.  Along with our extensive range of sharps bins, you can ensure everyone’s health and safety is being looked after.
