This exciting start to your career will develop you through the pharmacy career framework which will help you to progress to advanced clinical practice.

Informal enquiries to: Michelle Thow Specialist clinical Pharmacist PRI michelle.thow@nhs.scot or Siobheon Reid Lead Clinical Pharmacist PRI Siobheon.reid@nhs.scot

Hours of work are: 37 hours over 7 days. Part time hours may be considered. Applications are welcome from pharmacists working in any sector including those who will register this year.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.

Short-listed applicants will be contacted by email. Please check your emails regularly, including your junk/spam folder.
