Kamsons Pharmacy is shortly acquiring a new pharmacy in Boscombe, between Bournmouth and Christchurch in Dorset.
This is a quiet and easily-run pharmacy possibly suitable for a recently qualified or a provisionally registered pharmacist. There is the support of a full time manager to help you develop in your role. Of course applications from experienced pharmacists are very welcome as are job-share applicants.
Kamsons Pharmacy is no ordinary pharmacy chain. We are a forward thinking independent multiple that is family-owned and pharmacist-owned and run, with over 70 pharmacies. We also have three other pharmacies nearby who can offer support. In 2019 we were awarded the C & D Training & Development award, and we are always looking for opportunities to further the career of our pharmacists and employees. In each pharmacy you will have support from capable and experienced support staff. We give our pharmacist managers as much autonomy as possible with support from senior pharmacists within the group.
At Kamsons we will endeavour to support and work hard with you on a day to day basis and you will always have your area manager, who is an experienced pharmacist, to provide any advice or guidance in an on-demand manner. It is our expectation to retain the existing customer base, attract new patients, develop and streamline day to day work processes and boost service levels. We encourage our pharmacists to build key relationships with surgeries which often enables professional developmental opportunities such as independent prescribing. Currently we have pharmacists carrying out travel clinics and we use each pharmacy to support our remote prescribing services. In addition, if your focus is on business development there is plenty of opportunity to develop in this way as you will be taught and shown the business fundamentals and supported in this by your area manager.
Our pharmacies present as bright, clean and clear and have very clear work processes to aid the day to day running. The staffing levels are generous in order to allow for growth and to ensure vital tasks are not overlooked.
It will require a skilful and tactful approach to work with and help the existing team to embrace the customer-service and professional-services focus that is core to working for Kamsons Pharmacy. This will be an interesting and professionally stimulating role for the right pharmacist.
