Pharmacists

Mrs Shereen Amin (f)

Shereen grew up in Chester and North Wales and moved to Manchester in 2005 to study Pharmacy at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2009. She undertook her pre-registration training year and following successful examination, qualified as a pharmacist in 2010. Shereen worked for a number of years in community pharmacy before joining the practice in 2015, where her role includes running medication review clinics and monitoring prescribing to ensure it is safe and cost-effective.

Shereen has since undertake further training to become a pharmacist independent prescriber in 2016. A pharmacist independent prescriber may prescribe autonomously for any condition within their clinic competence, in contrast to a supplementary prescriber who is only able to prescribe medicines in accordance with a pre-agreed care plan drawn up between a doctor and patient. Shereen is now authorised to make medication changed where she deems it appropriate, for example tweaking a patient's blood pressure medication to improve control, without needing to refer patients back to their GP. This helps to streamline patient care at the practice.
