Rural West Primary Care Network – Clinical Pharmacist Vacancy

The Rural West Primary Care Network is seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated and experienced Clinical Pharmacist to join our friendly busy network of practices. The Network is made up of two GP Practices, Tadley Medical Partnership and Watership Down Health with surgeries in Kingsclere, Overton, Oakley and Tadley, Hampshire.

The post holder will work within their clinical competencies as part of a multi-disciplinary and multi-site team providing expertise in clinical medicines management and provide structured medication reviews of patients with polypharmacy, especially for older people, people in residential care homes and those with multiple comorbidities. They will support the management of long term conditions and the management of medicines on transfer of care, as well as systems for safer prescribing. They will also manage repeat prescription authorisations, reauthorisation and acute prescription requests, while addressing both the public health and social care needs of patients in Rural West PCN.

The post holder will take part in quality improvement initiatives and clinical audit as well as supporting the Quality and Outcomes Framework.

Applicants will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills and have experience working as an autonomous clinical pharmacist, preferably in a similar role. The role requires accreditation in the 18 month CPPE Primary Care Pharmacy Education Pathway; Pharmacists who have already completed a previous CPPE pathway, or have a considerable amount of prior knowledge, skill and experience that they can demonstrate, may be exempt from part/all of the pathway. For those requiring this training, the PCN will provide full support.

An Independent Prescribing qualification is highly desirable but the post holder will be supported to develop their role to become a non-medical prescriber, if that qualification is not already held.

The post is full time (37.5 hours per week) and requires travel within the Network to the surgeries of both Partnerships, so flexibility of working and access to private transport is essential.

Please apply for this post via NHS Jobs: https://www.jobs.nhs.uk reference no. J180-A2237-20-8618

The closing date for applications is 22nd September 20 and we expect to interview on Friday 2nd October 20.

For an informal discussion of the role please email Elizabeth Allison, Rural West Primary Care Manager on elizabeth.allison6@nhs.net (Wednesdays to Fridays)

Rural West Primary Care Network – Proactive Care Nurse Vacancy

The Rural West Primary Care Network is seeking to recruit a dynamic, highly motivated and experienced Proactive Care Nurse to join our friendly busy network of practices, to help us deliver high quality healthcare services to the PCN population. The Network is made up of two GP Practices, Tadley Medical Partnership and Watership Down Health with surgeries in Kingsclere, Overton, Oakley and Tadley, Hampshire.

 

The post holder will provide proactive medical care to vulnerable patients within the PCN, to improve the quality of care these patients receive and to reduce the risk of emergency hospital admission. The post holder will be working closely with the Frailty GP Lead and GPs at both Partnerships across the Rural West Network, as part of the Practices and the PCN multidisciplinary team. Working in patients’ homes, the post holder will have responsibility for providing a comprehensive frailty service to elderly frail patients and those with complex needs through long term conditions. They will support patients requiring primary care services whilst providing appropriate information, advice or referrals as per the agreed protocols.

 

Working collaboratively with the Practice teams to ensure the delivery of safe and effective care to the GP Practice population, the post holder will provide treatment, preventative care, screening and patient education. They will also support the management team in the reviewing of clinical policy and procedure.

 

The role enhances a predominantly reactive system by proactively case finding and managing patients identified as potentially vulnerable supported by a full-time Care Co-ordinator. The post holder will support the practices in the identification, management and maintenance of the frail elderly and review the holistic care needs of complex and vulnerable patients within the PCN.  They will liaise with the community Nursing teams and the hospital teams to facilitate early and smoother discharge of patients from hospital, and work with the Care Co-ordinator to review all elderly/complex patients’ post-hospital discharge to try and prevent unplanned readmission.

 

Applicants will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills and ideally have experience working in the primary care environment, preferably in a similar role.

The post is full time (37.5 hours per week, with some flexibility of working) and requires travel within the Network to patient residences and the surgeries of both Partnerships, so flexibility and access to private transport is essential.
