Lloydspharmacy is looking for pharmacists to work in Stoke, Lancashire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Devon, north Wales and the Isle of Man.

Barbara Sutherland, Lloydspharmacy's head of capability and originally from Northern Ireland, said: ‘We know there is currently a surplus of talented pharmacists in Ireland, yet we have a shortfall in the UK. Lloydspharmacy already offers financial incentives to encourage pharmacists to relocate, but now we're offering free flights and two nights of accommodation for those thinking about relocating to some of our key areas.'

Pharmacists are also offered the chance to try out working in key locations, with six-month interim programmes available.
