About the Role
We are looking to recruit to the post of Pharmacy Technician, to work with pharmacists within our Primary Care Network multidisciplinary healthcare team.
Clinical Pharmacy in General Practice is part of an exciting programme of transformation to develop a new model of care which addresses our ambition to deliver person-centred, coordinated care across the Southport and Formby Primary Care Network. The model is supported by the direction of national policy including the Five Year Forward View and GP Forward View where there is a need to better utilise the role of pharmacy within primary care to pro-actively help patients stay safe and well and out of hospital as well as helping to reduce the demands on general practice.
Main duties of the job
The main responsibilities of the Pharmacy Technician is:
- Pharmacy technicians play an important role, complementing clinical pharmacists and other members of the PCN multi- disciplinary team. Pharmacy technicians are different to clinical pharmacists as they are not able to prescribe or make clinical decisions, instead working under supervision to ensure effective and efficient use of medicines.
- The post holder will ensure that practices integrate with community and hospital pharmacy to help utilise skill mix, improve patient outcomes, ensure better access to healthcare and help manage workload. The role is pivotal to improving the quality of care and operational efficiencies, so requires motivation and passion to deliver an excellent service within general practice.
- The post holder will be supported to develop their role and follow the Primary care pharmacy education pathway within the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE).
Please note the interview date will be Tuesday 6th September. We are also open to applications for this role on a part-time basis
