Are you looking for a new challenge? Within ABUHB, two Neighbourhood Care Networks (NCNs, or GP clusters) are looking to recruit practice based clinical pharmacists. The aim is to release GP capacity within the surgery and to extend the pharmacist role within a primary care setting. You will work at each practice within the NCN, working closely with the NCN Lead. You will be a core member of  each GP practice team, and work closely with other health and social care professionals.

Posts are based in Caerphilly East (1 WTE) - Risca/Newbridge/Blackwood area

The successful candidate will be able to prioritise workload, work independently, build key relationships and be confident interacting with a wide range of stakeholders such as GPs, practice nurses, secondary care clinicians and patients.

In return for your commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism, we can offer a friendly and supportive environment.

We are looking to recruit to a band 8a salary for those applicants who meet the essential qualifications and experience. However, we will consider recruiting applicants at a band 7 with less experience and working towards their diploma
