Ms Helen Ghebrezabik (f)

Hello to patients of The Muswell Hill Practice!


My name is Helen Ghebrezadik and I am a clinical pharmacist by background; I spent my pre-registration year at the Whittington Hospital. Since then I have gained experience in a variety of specialities at the hospital.


You may be wondering why a pharmacist would be based in a GP surgery.


Firstly, my role is not to replace the role of a doctor, so if a condition needs diagnosing one of our GPs will always be your first port of call.


Below are some of the ways my role can help



  • Long term conditions – for example high blood pressure – we could discuss the medicines you are taking to make sure they are working for you

  • After a stay in hospital – if your medicines have changed I can help explain the rationale and help you get the maximum benefit from such changes

  • Reviewing your medicines – ideally all patients on long-term medicines should have yearly reviews, health checks can also be carried out at the same time

  • Experiencing side effects – if you are experiencing side effects we can discuss what the best options would be such as dose adjustments or switching to another medication

  • General medication enquiries – if you have any queries regarding the use of a specific medicine, side effects, interactions, planning to get pregnant/breastfeed and have any concerns

  •  


 So, I hope that explains a little around my role. Any recommendations I may make will be discussed with your GP first.  Any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated.  


Thank you, Helen.
