Bringing together Baffins and Milton Park surgeries, the East Shore Partnership provides GP services across the entire city of Portsmouth. Our experienced team delivers the highest standard of clinical services to keep the people of Portsmouth healthy – and you will have a vital part to play as you process our prescriptions.

Working closely with the Practice Pharmacist and Prescription Administrators, you will receive prescriptions from patients, resolve queries with GPs and liaise with suppliers on any shortages. Above all, you will ensure that new and repeat prescriptions are fulfilled quickly and accurately, whilst monitoring compliance with Controlled Drugs regulations and maintaining confidential patient records – so meticulous attention to detail is a must.

What’s more, you will find yourself involved in auditing processes and recommending improvements to enhance efficiency and reduce costs, requiring a proactive approach and plenty of fresh ideas. Some previous experience of working with prescriptions is essential, giving you familiarity with basic medical and pharmaceutical terms, and you should be very team-spirited and customer-oriented. Finally, you should be an excellent problem solver who is capable of taking the initiative, and you will be happy to undertake additional hours and responsibilities in order to progress.
