Macmillan Palliative Care Pharmacist,
Aneurin Bevan University Health Board
Emyr was the first primary care-based Macmillan Palliative Care Pharmacist to be appointed in Wales.
When he recognised that community pharmacy was greatly underutilised, Emyr made its integration into cancer services in Gwent a priority. More community pharmacies now stock an agreed list of palliative drugs, ensuring wider availability of medication for patients.
What’s more, thanks to Emyr, a streamlined medication discharge process has resulted in patients returning home sooner – essential to those who wish to spend their last days at home.
If you have any questions about Emyr's work please email Macmillan Development Manager Ginny Brink.
