You will be allocated a number of care homes with nursing in which you will be responsible for undertaking patient centred and outcome focused medication reviews. There will be the opportunity to take a lead on specific areas including medicines information, audit, prescribing issues and management of medications.

We are looking for UK registered pharmacists registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (UK), with post graduate clinical qualification and proven ability to influence within multidisciplinary or integrated teams for older people. The post requires you to be enthusiastic, highly motivated, able to plan and manage your own time to meet the needs and goals of the service.

We are looking for 1 x permanent post-holder and 1 x 9-12 month fixed term position.
