We have the most extensive selection of pharmacist roles
Pharmacists are in high demand in the UK and job prospects are highly favourable for primary care, community and hospital pharmacists.
What is a pharmacist?
Pharmacists are healthcare professionals involved in all aspects of medical delivery to patients. They are responsible for preparing and packaging the medicine a doctor prescribes as well as provide advice and consultation on medicinal dosage, side effects and patients’ queries.
What pharmacist jobs are available?
There exists three main types of pharmacist jobs – primary care pharmacy, community pharmacy and hospital pharmacy jobs.
Primary care pharmacists work for a GP surgery, clinic or Primary Care Trust (PCT) to provide medicine management, prescribing advice and clinical governance coordination.
Community pharmacists work in retail chemists with the provision of supplying medicine to the public, providing advice about symptoms and general health matters and ensuring the compatibility of multiple treatments. It is UK law that all community pharmacies be under direct supervision of a pharmacist.
Hospital pharmacists work directly with hospitals with the provision of purchasing, manufacturing and prescribing medicines, providing testing and delivering advice on selected medicines and their dosage.
