In-House Pharmacist / Smoking Cessation Advisor
Pharmacist in Dental Practice
Registered dental practices must achieve all the essential standards of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), whose outcome 9 is focused entirely on the way practices manage medicines. This is of particular importance.
We have an experienced pharmacist, Nina as part of our team. Her sole objective is ‘medicines management’. Her work underpins the delivery of quality patient outcomes from safe and effective use of medicines, improvement of service efficiency and adherence to medicines regulations. Working together has meant safe, effective and legal patient-focused medicines management in practice.
Smoking is linked specifically to a range of oral diseases, including periodontal disease and oral cancer. Our pharmacist will counsel and encourage smokers to stop smoking, advise on ‘quit strategies’ and give information on cessation support services and nicotine replacement therapy.
