  • Primary care pharmacist running our hypertension register and recently obtained prescribing qualification

  • Friendly administrative support teams including experienced repeat prescription clerks
  • CQC rating ‘Good’
  • Active involvement with Somerset LMC and Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group with one GP partner as current chair
