Pharmacy in the practice

In March 2019, COORDINARE - South Eastern NSW PHN invited expression of interest (EOIs) from general practice to apply for funding to integrate pharmacists in to the general practice care team.

Through this funding, COORDINARE seeked to support improved practice capacity and heightened quality patient care by promoting a team based care approach. Ultimately, the funding will support the integration of pharmacist as part of the care team by developing strong working relationships with both general practice and community pharmacy; and assist practices to support vulnerable patients and reduce potentially preventable hospitalisations.
