Clinical pharmacists are highly qualified experts in medicines and provide direct patient care in a range of ways. This includes carrying out structured medication reviews for patients with ongoing health problems and improving patient safety, outcomes and value through a person-centred approach. They work in collaboration with GPs, Physician Associates and other healthcare professionals.
The clinical psychologist works as part of Team Around the Practice (TAP) who provides psychological therapy and social prescribing to people who feel stuck, socially isolated, very low, anxious or who experience persistent emotional and physical pain, or a sense of being overwhelmed.
Diabetes Prevention Clinic
The Diabetes Prevention Clinic provides evidence based behavioural interventions and support for people at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Health visitors aim to promote the health and well being of families with children under the age of five. After you are discharged from hospital, the Health Visitor at your local mother/baby clinic will give advice on child health and mother/baby well-being.
The staff members in iCope are all trained to a high standard to deliver evidence-based psychological therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions. Staff are either Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWP) or Psychological Therapists. All therapists receive regular supervision.
