As a Senior Clinical Pharmacist you will be a core member of the Coastal West Sussex Proactive Care Plus multidisciplinary frailty teams, leading on medicines optimisation. You will visit patients in their own homes for patient centred medication reviews, review prescribing, and make recommendations to GPs to improve patient outcomes focusing on quality and safety. You will establish and maintain effective working relationships, working alongside a range of health and social care professionals, and liaising with community pharmacies and other stakeholders as required to implement medicines optimisation.

To be considered for this exciting opportunity you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, proven team working abilities and also be able to work independently, managing your time effectively and prioritising your own workload.
