Are you passionate about delivering the best care for patients and their medicines?

NHS Fife has an opportunity for an enthusiastic and experienced clinical pharmacist with a background in hospital, primary care or community pharmacy to be part of an expanding multidisciplinary team to deliver a clinical, patient facing role within GP practices across Fife.

The NHS Fife Pharmacy Service is undergoing an ambitious programme of transformation and integration. It serves a population of approximately 380,000 people, and is provided by an integrated team of around 200 Pharmacy staff, including Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Support Workers, Nurses, and Administrators. The team work across Acute and Community hospital sites, General Practices, Mental Health services, and a range of specialist teams. Partnership working is at the core of our values, and we work closely with other members of the multi-disciplinary team, including our Community Pharmacy colleagues, to deliver the highest quality care for everyone in Fife.

This post would suit someone with excellent clinical knowledge, leadership skills and communication skills, who would like to develop their career in primary care. This post will provide a clinical pharmacy service to GP Practices to undertake a range of roles, including medication/ polypharmacy reviews in care homes or other settings.

You will have a Masters degree in Pharmacy or equivalent and be on the practising register of the General Pharmaceutical Council. It is essential that you have either a relevant post-graduate qualification in clinical pharmacy/ prescribing sciences or independent prescriber qualification or are due to complete either within the next 6 months.

Applicants should have the ability to travel to different locations across Fife, although you will work in GP practices in the West of Fife (around Dunfermline area).

Applications on a secondment basis will be considered providing you have prior agreement from your current line manager.
