Pharmacists

Kevin Rothnie
MRPharmS, BSc Pharmacy,  MSc Clinical Pharmacy.

We are pleased to share an attached pharmacist with another Forfar practice.

His main responsibility is to advise on all aspects of prescribing within the practice.  This includes making recommendations on the cost-effectiveness of medicines, carrying out various prescribing projects and individual patient medication reviews. He works with all members of the Primary Health Care Team and most importantly, with patients. Any changes he suggests to individual medication regimes are planned and discussed with the doctors before implementation.  He is bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and staff.

Community Nurses

Susan Morrison (f)

District Nurse Team Leader

The team of district nurses and healthcare assistants provide nursing care for patients of all ages in the community.

They can provide acute clinical care and have expertise in nursing terminally ill patients in their own homes. They provide support to both patient and carer and have a role as counsellor and health promoter in the community. Arrangements for care in the home are usually made by the doctors or on discharge from the hospital but should you wish to contact the nurse yourself, please telephone  Forfar 468344 Monday to Friday 09:00 – 16:30 or telephone the surgery.
