The Kennet and Avon Medical Partnership (KAMP), was formed on 1 April 2017 from the Marlborough Medical Practice and Pewsey Surgery, to provide primary care services to around 18,000 patients. Our staff are based over two sites, and our patients can access services at either location.

We are a semi-rural NHS GP Surgery dispensing around 5000 items a month. We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic individual to work with our existing team to ensure that all medicines are dispensed in a safe and timely manner adhering to all legal requirements and Practice Standard Operating Procedures. The post holder will also provide a high level of service to patients, doctors, nurses and other members of the Practice team across both locations.

The successful candidate will project a positive and friendly image to patients.
