Occasionally I put up pharmacist wanted job adverts for positions working mainly with Indigenous Australians. Here’s one in the Kimberley.

This job described below is at a new site within a remote hospital in the area providing a range of services to the hospital and outside of the hospital. I like the “team management approach to chronic disease”.
