Innovations in Primary Care Ltd (IPC Ltd) is a GP Federation that provides a number of general practice medical services including extensive nurse training and same day GP appointments via local Minor Injury Assessment and Minor Illness (MIAMI) services.  As a result of a successful bid as part of the NHS England Clinical Pharmacists in General Practice Phase 2 programme, IPC Ltd. is establishing a General Practice clinical pharmacy service in Worthing and Adur, West Sussex. We wish to adopt an integrated approach that addresses interface issues, reduces gaps in service and promotes quality services for patients.  IPC are seeking a number of practice pharmacists to become an integral part of the General Practice team. 

You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team to develop and run processes for repeat prescription reauthorisation, management of medicines on transfer of care and systems for safer prescribing, as well as having a role in managing long term conditions. Alongside business as usual duties, some of your work will be project based, to ensure you have an interesting and developmental role.

The successful candidates will be supported in terms of clinical learning and professional development through access to a GP clinical supervisor, a senior clinical pharmacist and through a formal education pathway to become a non-medical prescriber, provided as part of the NHSE programme.

You should be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Society and have a minimum of two years post registration experience. Primary care experience would be an advantage but is not essential. Flexibility, enthusiasm and the ability to prioritise tasks effectively are essential skills.

Closing date- 25th August 2017

Interviews anticipated to be held w/c 11th September 2017
