We’re looking for qualified GPHC registered pharmacists who can support our business in this time of change and provide our patients with their much needed medication. While they are unable to visit their local Pharmacy your role as a Pharmacist will play a pivotal part in supporting the UK during this difficult time. 

Echo makes prescriptions painless. Through our revolutionary app patients can order NHS repeat prescriptions, get medications delivered straight to their door, and even get reminders when it’s time to take them too. It’s secure, simple to use, and, most importantly, free.

We’re growing fast and are on the lookout for talented professionals who are passionate about improving health for millions of people in the UK

We want to help you develop as well as improving the experience for our patients and customers.

What does being part of Echo Pharmacist team mean? It involves you getting to help make sure millions of people get the life-changing medications they need, through our distribution network to pharmacies, hospitals and GPs across the country. It also means you’ll be getting to work alongside highly skilled, experienced colleagues who are passionate about making a real difference.

We are a tight-knit unit, and everyone here at Echo is also working towards improving the product and experience every single day. You’ll have constant opportunities to feed into our ongoing systems improvement and the opportunity to liaise not only with our Pharmacy and Operations team, but with Product/App/Engineering teams to shape and develop our internal IT tools.

About you.

An adaptable and flexible mentality will be key, as well as a desire to embed newly acquired knowledge and skills.

We need people with a can-do attitude who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and get things done. In return we offer fantastic progression and development opportunities within the McKesson portfolio.
