Due to a shortage of flu vaccine supplies we are unable to invite all patients who are eligible in the 50-64 age group category and therefore we have prioritised patients in that age group with health conditions.  If you are in this age group and do wish to have a flu vaccine and have not heard from us, local pharmacies are providing these free of charge.  If we do obtain further vaccines for this age group, we will contact you.

Carol Dolderson

Clinical Pharmacist

Introduction

Hi, I’m Carol. I’m a lead integrated clinical care pharmacist for the network and I’ve been part of the team since late 2020.

I have more than 10 years of experience working as a pharmacist in the NHS. This has been in a range of roles, including hospital, medicines information and medicines management. I have been a pharmacist prescriber since 2017.

What I Do

I work with patients and staff in all practices across the network. I visit care homes to carry out in-depth medication reviews with residents.

As a clinical pharmacist, my role is to help people get the most out of their medications through understanding what matters most to them.

I check if medications are safe and effective, and in line with current guidelines. It's really important to me to find out how people feel about the medication they take and how they manage with their medication day-to-day.

How I Support Patients

I have a particular focus on care home patients and people who take multiple regularly prescribed medications.

During in-depth reviews, I have the time to take a holistic look at a person’s overall health, how they are coping with their medication, and make adjustments to maximise it.

This is especially important for people with more than one long term condition or who have complex medicine routines with multiple prescriptions.

Get in touch

When medication reviews are due, we will contact you to book an appointment. Questions or queries about your medication can also be passed on to me through staff at your GP practice.
