You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to develop and run processes for repeat prescription re-authorisation, management of medicines on transfer of care and systems for safer prescribing in addition to patient caseload management in acute and long-term conditions.

We would welcome applications from pharmacists working in all sectors of pharmacy, with a minimum of 2 years post graduate experience. The successful candidate will have a degree in pharmacy. A post-graduate diploma or higher degree in clinical pharmacy is desirable. A comprehensive programme of training will be provided as part of the pilot scheme. The successful candidate is required to undertake the independent prescribing course to become a non-medical prescriber and (if not held) the post-graduate diploma course in clinical pharmacy and is expected to work across 4 practices after 6-month training in the Lead Practice (Northam Surgery).

Please see the attached job description and person specification for more details.
