We are happy to introduce one of our newest team members, general practice pharmacist, Debbie Hawthorne. You may recognise her from our ‘Ask A Pharmacist’ video series presented on Facebook over the last month.
What is a general practice pharmacist?
A general practice pharmacist works with you, your doctor, your community pharmacist and other health professionals as a team to improve your overall health. She can:
• talk with you in the practice, or on telehealth, about the medicines you are taking and answer any questions you may have
• work closely with you, your doctor and other health professionals to better manage your health
• work with you and your doctor to ensure your medicines are working correctly. She may also recommend ways to improve the effect of your medicines if required.
Debbie is an accredited pharmacist who works in the medication review field in North East Victoria and is now available to see you in clinic, or via telehealth from Docker St and South Wangaratta Medical clinics.
She is happy to assist with any medication enquiries, medication reviews, device technique, medication management and more.
No referral is required and there is no out of pocket cost to visit Debbie, so call the clinic to book your appointment with our general practice pharmacist today!
