About the employer

We’re transforming community pharmacy by supporting the NHS and GPs. Using the latest technology, we have reduced the amount of time our highly skilled pharmacists spend managing routine prescriptions, which allows them to spend more time caring for patients. By shifting the emphasis of our community pharmacies towards increasing patient services, we’re turning them into the destination of choice for patients seeking on-demand consultations and treatment for everyday health conditions. Our friendly, pharmacy teams are based in the heart of their communities and have long standing relationships with their patients. We want to offer those communities access to much more than just dispensing and over-the-counter remedies. The technology that underpins our business allows our highly trained team to offer their patients the care that they need within their own communities.
