This is an exciting time for the NHS across the Fylde Coast. We are at the cutting edge of developing new ways of delivering health services, with ambitious plans to integrate health and care across the area.

As part of this journey the two Fylde Coast clinical commissioning groups have come together, and the teams are now operating as one function under a single management team. This is the first step in the development of an integrated Care Home Pharmacist and Technician working for the needs of care home residents in the Fylde Coast NHS.

We are seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Pharmacy technician to work with a Pharmacist and care home team to support the delivery of medical prescribing and optimisation during this important period of change, and in particular to support the development of Healthier Fylde Coast, the local integrated care partnership.
