The successful candidate will support the lead COVID-19 Pharmacist in Lancashire and South Cumbria and will contribute to ensuring the safe, effective and optimal use of the vaccines across the health economy. The role will be supporting the System Vaccination Operational Centre (SVOC) and wider staff working to ensure the delivery of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
