Clinical Pharmacy Team
The Harness Clinical Pharmacy team consists of a range of pharmacists with combined background experience throughout the sector. Their aim is to utilise their skills in medication safety and medicines optimisation to support and promote the safe and appropriate use of medicines across Harness.
They work alongside primary care teams to review repeat prescriptions, answer patient queries, action clinical letters and carry out medicine reconciliation following hospital discharges. They also liaise with specialist hospital teams when needed and action safety alerts. They manage various long-term conditions from hypertension, diabetes and asthma as well as complex polypharmacy and chronic pain reviews. Some of the team are Independent Prescribers who use this skill in their specialist clinics.
Some of the clinical pharmacists work within the Harness ICP with a multidisciplinary team of clinicians where unique skill sets are used to provide holistic domiciliary /remote reviews including optimising the management of long-term or acute chronic conditions, the patient’s current living arrangements to reduce the risk of falls / hospital admissions and even re-housing where required via the Harness social and care coordinators.
The team also support care homes across Harness and work closely with the local CCG / practice teams on QIPP and QOF initiatives. The team aspires to continue to deliver the best quality of care to Harness patients and to support the Harness vision of creating healthier communities.

Almost all Harness GP practices provide additional appointments outside of their normal opening hours. These are known as extended hours appointments and are available during the weekdays in the early morning or late evening. Please contact your local GP surgery or visit their practice website for further information. Harness GP practices are also working together to offer patients better access to GP appointments at the new Park Royal Medical Practice, Central Middlesex Hospital, Acton Lane, NW10 7NS. This means that you will be able to see another health professional at a time which is most convenient for you. You can now book appointments to see a GP between Monday to Friday from 4pm to 8pm or on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.
There are now a range of ways you can get advice from a GP or practice nurse, including online consultations, over the telephone and by using the NHS App. Speak to the practice receptionist or a member of the practice team to find out more.
