*Joint Role* Community Pharmacist Manager and General Practice Clinical Pharmacist based in Sanquhar – Dumfries and Galloway

Salary upwards of £36,000

This role will see the pharmacist being employed by Lloyds Pharmacy as a full time employee then seconded to work within the local surgery as a General Practice Clinical Pharmacist on 2-3 days each week. Candidates would need to have a high level of both clinical knowledge and managerial skill to fulfil both roles effectively and the successful candidate would be expected to have already obtained their Pharmacist Independent Prescribing (IP) qualification or would be required to undertake this training supported by NHS Dumfries & Galloway once they start in the position.

This is a unique opportunity to experience pharmacy from both a community pharmacy and General Practice perspective and will be the first time that a position such as this has been offered within the Dumfries and Galloway region.

Within Lloyds Pharmacy our Pharmacists are not just Pharmacists. They’re true healthcare partners. They’re trusted advisers. They’re problem solvers, sympathetic listeners and inspiration givers. Join us in this role, and you can be all these things and more.

About you
Customers and communities are at the heart of everything we do. So, first and foremost, you’ll be the kind of person who loves to provide exceptional patient consultations – approachable and an exceptional listener. You must have an MPharm degree or equivalent and be registered with the GPhC by your start date. On top of that, to keep up with the evolving landscape, we’re looking for someone who’s eager to share their expertise to inspire teams, drive a learning culture and improve your pharmacy. In return, you’ll have access to a range of career paths and training opportunities you’d expect from an industry leader.

Lloyds Pharmacy is a community pharmacy network with over 1,500 stores nationwide. The size and scale of our business is brought to life through our partnership with McKesson – a Fortune Global 500 company and leading provider of integrated healthcare solutions. As a Pharmacist here, you’ll become a pillar of your community; helping to deliver local services and projects, like the National Diabetes Prevention Programme, that are completely unique to us. Taking ownership of your role, you’ll become a trusted adviser to the NHS as you deliver a highly efficient end-to-end healthcare service that transforms lives. But you won’t do it alone. You’ll be surrounded by people who are just as passionate about exceptional care-giving as you are. Plus, with ongoing clinical development, coaching and support, you’ll have everything you need to make a real difference in people’s lives.
Building brilliant relationships with other healthcare professionals, developing outstanding teams and sharing best practice with colleagues.
