Job Vacancies

Clinical Pharmacist

The Barnstaple Alliance has an exciting opportunity for another clinical pharmacist to join our Primary Care Network.

The Alliance of Brannam, Litchdon, Fremington and Queens Medical Centres has a long history of collaborative working. The practices are within close proximity and between them look after 50,000 patients.

In this role you will act as part of a multi-professional NHS team in providing clinical pharmacy services that will protect, maintain and restore the health of patients.

The successful applicant will be supported by our three current practice pharmacists. The nature of the role will evolve over time but will be divided between a patient facing role and medicines optimisation/quality improvement across the network.

We are looking for a proactive, highly organised, patient focused individual who is keen to learn or already has experience in the general practice setting.

Barnstaple is an excellent place to live and work. A popular holiday destination on the Taw estuary, it is close to surfing beaches and the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Sailing, cycling, walking and a host of other leisure activities are readily available and a link to the M5 motorway gives easy access to the rest of the country.

Please see attached job description and person specification. If you wish to discuss this role further please contact Dee Brown Practice Manager Brannam Medical Centre 01271 314210 deebrown@nhs.net
