At PML, everyone counts and we are focused on working together to develop and deliver services that we know people want and need, so that patients get the best care for their circumstances.

There is an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Pharmacist who wants to work as part of a local, multidisciplinary team in a patient-facing capacity.

You will be joining a well – established, high performing team of clinical pharmacists, and provided with excellent supervision and professional support. The successful candidate would be covering the GP Practices within Brackley & Towcester PCN.

PML is establishing itself as an employer of choice for clinical pharmacists for primary care, and we can offer you professional development and the opportunity to shape and innovate services to improve patient care. This is a new role and you will have the opportunity to help shape their impact.

Principal Medical Limited (PML) is a GP owned and led ‘not for profit’ primary care organisation, run by GPs and health professionals. We were founded in 2004 by a small group of General Practitioners, to enable local NHS healthcare professionals to develop and deliver innovative primary care services for their local area. In the years since it was formed, the organisation has grown and now more than 60% of GP practices in Oxfordshire and 30% of those in Northamptonshire are associated with PML.

We welcome applications from:-

  • Qualified and registered clinical pharmacists with a minimum of 2 years post qualification experience, working either in public and/or commercial healthcare sector.

  • Have an appreciation of the nature of primary care prescribing, concepts of rational prescribing and strategies for improving prescribing
  • Possess excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to communicate complex and sensitive information in an understandable form to a variety of audiences (e.g. patients)
  • Hold a driving licence and has access to transport to undertake some travel between local GP surgeries.

In addition to training and development support, we offer eligibility to join the NHS pension scheme, 5 weeks holiday and public holidays (pro-rata for part-time), life insurance and other benefits.

Please set out your preferred work pattern and salary expectations in your application.

We believe that local care providers, who know and understand the health needs of their own patients, and who are used to working collaboratively in their region, can provide the best quality and most cost effective integrated primary care services. We work to develop services we know people want and need so that patients get the best care options for their circumstances.

After over a decade in business, we have a proven track record of success in delivering a diverse range of services and we are continually looking to bid for new contract opportunities and to recruit motivated and ambitious staff to join us.
