A unique opportunity to work within a purpose built pharmacy specialising in the provision of services to Care Homes.

Eastwood Pharmacy underwent expansion a few years ago and it's premises now have the perfect operating platform in which to provide excellent pharmaceutical care to both the local community and to the numerous Care Homes it serves. You would be joining an established and committed team of pharmacists, NVQ2/NVQ3 dispensers, ACT and delivery drivers.

Previous experience with providing services to Care Homes is desirable but not essential as all training will be provided, but the ideal candidate would have excellent communication, organisational and team working skills and would be able to utilise these in a fast paced environment.

The role includes delivering all aspects of pharmacy services to the local community within which the pharmacy is situated and the provision of medication, advice and support to Care Home colleagues in order that residents and patients receive the best possible pharmaceutical care. This includes providing monthly medication and mid month emergencies in a timely fashion, managing stock control including procuring specials and different dosage forms, and following all procedures to ensure that we provide a safe and efficient service at all times. You must also have a passion for building relationships as you will come into contact with many other healthcare professionals on a daily basis.

This exciting role will be full time and you will be supported with training, development and a clear career pathway.
