Description:

Pharmacists could carry out 20 per cent of GPs work, according to the president of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.

President Steve Churton said: "Every year patients with minor ailments generate over 50 million GP consultations: that's almost 20 per cent of doctors' workloads, costing the NHS more than £1.5bn. There is absolutely no reason why such consultations could not be handled by pharmacists, releasing an hour a day for every GP in the country to see patients with more complex needs."
