‘Revolutionary’ new software is enabling a community pharmacist and a GP to improve care for patients with TB in Newham, east London – which has the highest incidence in the UK, at seven times the national average.

EMIS Web for Pharmacy - currently being piloted by pharmacist Jignesh Patel at the Rohpharm Pharmacy and GP Farzana Hussein at the nearby Project Surgery ­- is the first clinical system in the UK to enable pharmacists to read and write to a shared patient record with GPs.
