Description

Are you a pharmacist interested in a career in primary care?

The Sunderland GP Alliance would like to invite interested pharmacists to an open evening on 19th September 2019 6pm to 8pm in the Riverview Suite, Stadium of Light, Sunderland.

The five year framework for GP contract reform provides funding for a number of additional roles in primary care including Clinical Pharmacists, who will work across the new Primary Care Networks in a pioneering role.

This is an exciting time for the city and our residents as we continue to build on our ambitions and experience to provide better health for Sunderland by working collaboratively to provide joined up health and social care. A career in pharmacy in general practice offers an opportunity to work as part of an established and supportive team to develop greater clinical skills in a patient facing role, including opportunities to gain independent prescriber status.

Over the last four years, Sunderland have been committed to improving services for patients and staff by creating access to GPs on evenings and weekends, supporting multi-disciplinary team working for our most unwell patients and by piloting Clinical Pharmacists in the General Practice sector, obtaining runner up status in the Primary Care Pharmacy Team of the year.

These additional pharmacy roles will build on our pilot and will be embedded within Primary Care Networks, where staff will benefit from:

- An attractive employment package.
- Robust and established clinical supervision and support
- Primary Care specific training via a CPPE primary care pathway, including Independent Prescribing
- GP mentoring
- Peer support and team network
- Potential opportunities to work across other pharmacy sectors in the future
- Support to develop clinical skills as appropriate for the role
- System network access and learning opportunities
- Career path and career development opportunities

To find out more about working in primary care in Sunderland, we would welcome you at the event on the 19th September where we will showcase Sunderland’s future ambitions and provide opportunities to speak to pharmacists and other professions currently working in this area.
