Say goodbye to long commutes, and hello to life in the country.  Our group of three pharmacies operate in a 20 minute radius between Newton Stewart and Whithorn in SW Scotland.  Nestled at the foot of the Galloway Hills on the Solway Firth, the area is perfect for accessing hill walking, road & mountain biking, sailing and the Galloway Forest, the UK's Largest and one of only 4 recognised Dark Skies Parks in the UK.

Rural doesn't mean backward where our pharmacies are concerned though.  Our team already has one qualified Independent Prescriber, another in training and we will continue to develop our team to include ACT's, ACD's and train further pharmacists in the business to IP level. 

We work on the leading edge of pharmaceutical care and in our group of forward thinking, innovative pharmacies, you will experience variety as well as gain skills in, working with our automated dispensing robot at Welcome Pharmacy - Creebridge (the only Community Pharmacy robot, in Dumfries & Galloway).  We're using the time freed up by the robot, not to cut staff levels, but to build and design a brand new range of services far beyond those you would normally find in Community Pharmacy, anywhere.

You will also help to implement the small scale hub and spoke model are developing to operate between our Welcome Pharmacy - Creebridge and Welcome Pharmacy - Wigtown branches and you'll work in the space and comfort of our brand newly refurbished dispensary at Whithorn Pharmacy, currently in the process of being more than doubled in size and designed to be fit for purpose both now and well into the future.

We have a bit of flexibility so can offer between 3 and 5 days per week for the right candidate.

Be part of a team with a vision. 

We’re building pharmacy a pharmacy businesses for the future!

Come along with us..
