AGM Thursday 15th September – Book Your Place Now – deadline to book 18th August

Contractors are invited to book a place at the Community Pharmacy Lincolnshire AGM, which will take place on Thursday 15th September at Washingborough Hall, near Lincoln. We need to let the venue have numbers by mid-August so the deadline for booking is Wednesday 18th August.  A hot buffet will be provided at 1830 and the short AGM meeting will be followed by our guest GP speaker’s talk. A link to the invitation with full details can be found here.

This year, particularly as we build on the roll-out of the GP referral into the Community Pharmacy Consultation service, we thought it would be useful to ask our GP guest speaker, Dr Rehaan Ansari, to give a presentation based on how GPs minimise antibiotic prescribing, to assist with pharmacist decisions about escalation of patients with minor ailments.

Dr Rehaan Ansari is a GP and Partner at Cliff House Medical Practice. He has a long history with the surgery, working initially as a Healthcare Assistant before moving to Newcastle to attend Medical School.

Following graduation in 2016, Dr Ansari completed postgraduate training in Middlesbrough and Nottingham before moving back to Lincoln to take up Partnership.

Dr Ansari provides expertise in diagnosis and management of complex cases, and his clinical interests are in mental health and medical education.

As well as heading the Multidisciplinary Team and providing the overall clinical vision for the Practice, Dr Ansari works with the Primary Care Network, and has taken on a role as Mental Health Transformation Lead.

Outside of work Dr Ansari has been known for mental health advocacy, including working with Time To Talk on the campaign ‘Get The Picture’. He is a long standing Arsenal supporter and a keen gamer.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming him to our AGM.

We look forward to seeing you at the AGM.
