Norwich Practices Ltd
Agenda for Change Band 5 equivalent

Primary Care Network Pharmacy Technician

Responsible to: Head of Transformation/PCN Lead Clinical Pharmacist

Location: Based with OneNorwich Practices, supporting Norwich PCN

Salary: Agenda for Change equivalent band 5

Hours of Work: Full-time

OneNorwich represents 22 Norwich Practices. It was created to provide strategic leadership and to implement transformational change for General Practice. A significant focus for OneNorwich is the development of a sustainable General Practice focusing on capability and workforce capacity. The role of Pharmacy Technicians within the Primary Care Network is being introduced as a completely new addition to the current PCN Clinical Pharmacists, with a vision to create resilient primary care teams, able to provide an integrated, patient-centred service.

Primary Care Networks (PCN) are now strongly emerging as the new shape of general practice, as directed by NHS England. In Norwich, we have an established Primary Care Network made up of four defined groups of GP Practices, called ‘neighbourhoods’. The PCN neighbourhood will provide a dedicated focus to connect the local primary care and community teams. OneNorwich has been mandated by all Norwich Practices to provide the necessary transformation, infrastructure and support for Norwich PCN, ensuring that the NHS England Network Contract DES can be delivered. We are seeking to recruit a FTE experienced Pharmacy Technician keen to work within Primary Care Networks. This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team, innovating and leading transformational change.
