Interest or experience in Mental Health or primary care and looking for something a bit different?

New and exciting opportunities have arisen for a primary care Pharmacy Technician in the East Hampshire Primary Mental Health Care Team. The successful candidate will be contributing to and delivering a new way of working in mental health.

Working with Primary Care Networks (PCN's) within East Hampshire you will help support patient pathways across the interface of primary and secondary care. You will work closely with the Advanced Pharmacists, general practice staff, mental health practitioners based in primary care as well as community mental health staff.

The post involves working alongside doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals in both primary and secondary care to provide a more integrated health care provision. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a high level of clinical expertise, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and need to be flexible, self-driven and adaptable.

Main duties of the job

Across Hampshire and Isle of Wight (HIOW) we have launched our plan to transform experiences in adult mental health in a programme called 'No Wrong Door'. This is a new and innovative service led by the local NHS, councils, Public Health, GPs, voluntary and community partners and people with lived experience of mental illness.

Through our research adults with a serious mental illness have told us first contact is the most important point in successfully starting their recovery. When people with a serious mental illness are at their most anxious, they face too many choices with little support.

To tackle this, we are going to:

1.Ensure that at the start of a person's recovery, wherever and however a person accesses care they are met with compassion, understanding, and supported with both their physical and mental wellbeing.

2.Build teams around communities that are close to people's homes, by working with our partners including the voluntary sector, making sure people's recovery is close to their personal support networks.

3.Provide people who are working across these physical and mental health services with the right support and training, making sure we have creative career options across the area.

Southern Health NHS Trust will be working with Primary Care Networks, known as PCNs, to develop teams of health and care professionals including wellbeing practitioners, nurses, experts in psychology and psychiatry, pharmacists social workers, and education and employment support workers.
