Clinical Pharmacist

Clinical Pharmacist Appointments (patient bookable)

Mr Taariq Miah, MRPharmS from King’s College London, Independent Prescriber, GPhC Qualified in 2017

Hi, my name is Taariq and I am a clinical pharmacist working within the GP surgery. I have worked a number of years in both community pharmacy and GP practices and I am able to prescribe medication if required. In order to become a pharmacist, we spend over 4 years in training to a master’s level and we complete additional qualifications to be able to prescribe, as I have done.

You can find telephone appointments with me both online and by calling the practice.

You should book an appointment with me for any of the following:

  1. Questions about your medication
  2. Starting a new medication
  3. Stopping a medication
  4. Experiencing side effects from your medication
  5. Changing your medication

In addition, you can book in for certain minor health conditions with me such as:


Insect bites

Eczema or skin complaints,

Nappy rash

Cradle cap

Eye infections

Constipation (new problem),


Heamorrhoids/piles (new problem)


Throat infection/pain

Asthma flare ups

Coughs (if it’s been less than 3 weeks)

Low mood.

A core part of my role involves conducting medication reviews, for long-term conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma or COPD and routine/simple mediation reviews.

Finally, I assess the practice’s repeat prescription requests, so I may call you from time to time if you have requested a medication that is not on repeat.

Pharmacy Technician Appointments:

Mr Adnaan Patel, BSc Hons Biomedical Science, NVQ Level 3 Registered Pharmacy Technician

Hi, my name is Adnaan and I am the pharmacy technician working within the GP practice. I used to work at Boots in Stamford Hill, so I may know some of you already!

My job involves processing everyone’s repeat prescription requests and I check things such as:

  • If your medication needs to be synchronised
  • If you need blood tests to monitor your medications
  • if you are due your medication
  • If you are under/over using
  • Making sure you’ve had your annual health checks or medication reviews

Part of my role also involves triaging or assessing a patient’s condition when they call in. I have a clinical background and therefore I can direct you to the most appropriate clinician, whether that is the GP or the pharmacist.

If you have questions about your medicines, you can ask to have a call back from me – which will usually be on the same day!
