Sessional clinical pharmacists for Burntwood & Lichfield GP practices…DEADLINE EXTENDED


Sessional clinical pharmacists for Burntwood & Lichfield GP practices…DEADLINE EXTENDED

February 27, 2017


The Burntwood & Lichfield Network of GP practices are seeking expressions of interest from local community pharmacy contractors to provide clinical pharmacist services to those practices, to support a bid for funding that the GPs are making under phase two of the Clinical Pharmacists in GPs programme. The LPC has been asked to facilitate gathering EoIs from local contractors, and we see this as an excellent opportunity not just for the individual contractors and pharmacists but also in developing closer links between community pharmacies and GP practices locally.

The plan is to engage approximately three full-time equivalent pharmacists (ie equivalent to a total of 30 half-day sessions per week) from local community pharmacies under a service level agreement (SLA) for a three year term; ideally the relevant pharmacists should be qualified Independent Prescribers(IPs) or currently training to achieve IP status, however there may also be opportunities for pharmacists who are not yet qualified or undergoing training. Further training and development will be available to support those engaged, depending on the needs of practices and current areas of pharmacist competence and experience.

If you are interested in taking part in this please note the deadline has now been extended; we request that you  complete the form below no later than noon on Friday 17th March 2017; if you work for a multiple pharmacy please check with your line manager before completing the form – Lloyds Pharmacy will be handling this centrally so if you are a Lloyds pharmacist DO NOT complete the form.
