Dispensing Assistant – Offsite Dispensing

Are you looking for a Pharmacy role with a real difference? Being based in our off-site dispensing operations means supporting either manual CDS dispensing or PAS (Prescription Assembly Solution), an automated system for assembling patient prescriptions. Both models fulfil prescriptions off-site at large hubs and then delivers complete patient orders locally, to community pharmacies.

The role of Dispensing Assistant contributes to the success of Off Site Dispensing by providing an exceptional level of quality of service at all times, supporting the team in delivering a world class service in an innovative environment. This is one of only 4 hubs within Mckesson UK and our pioneering technology is revolutionising the way we help our patients.

Join us as a Dispensing Assistant and you’ll be a key member of the team, playing an integral part in managing dispensing workloads accurately and safely and ensuring high standards of dispensing practises are upheld and delivered, adhering to ethical, professional and legal pharmacy standards.
