Dr Nick Ardagh-Walter
Ziad is the senior PCN pharmacist at NSG PCN in Gloucestershire, the PCN now has 6 pharmacists and 2 technicians covering 50,000 patients. He has a background of CCG work, community pharmacy, intermediate care homes and started a care home medication review service covering the county. He has worked in general practice for 8 years in total with 5 years as an IP.
Ziad is now a partner in his base practice - Churchdown Surgery and has taken on the prescribing lead, QOF lead roles, and oversees the cardiovascular management of patients within the practice, as well as his senior PCN role. Clinically, his main area is cardiovascular disease, however Ziad believes the role will naturally progress to a ‘generalist role’ in the future.
