Job Title

Clinical Lead, Schedule Development 


Job Description / Details about position

  • Newly created position
  • Influential role in the health sector 

The Pharmaceutical Schedule is the vehicle through which PHARMAC manages the Government funding of medicines and medical devices. A well-functioning Schedule can support good clinical practice, enable new models of care and help contribute to an accessible health system.  

We are embarking on a journey to redesign the Pharmaceutical Schedule infrastructure, how it works and how it fits in the broader sector. We need to ensure that the Schedule supports the organisation as it moves forward and has the capacity to adapt to new and unique challenges in the face of our expanded scope and the changing sector environment. In doing so, we need to address some complex issues such as: 

  • How can we best target funding for medicines and medical devices in hospitals and the community?
  • How can we enable new models of care and new ways of accessing pharmaceuticals?
  • How do we ensure that the Schedule connects seamlessly within an evolving health IT landscape?
  • How do we design and build a Schedule that is both future-oriented and consumer-centred?

The Clinical Lead will have responsibility for providing advice on the above as well as the development and continual evolution of the Schedule with a focus on clinical practice issues. 

The successful candidate will ideally have a clinical background who likes to look at issues from a system-level perspective and is interested in driving change. Ideally, you’ll enjoy and have familiarity working on issues that, while being clinical in nature, also have policy, information technology and commercial components as well. 

PHARMAC is the government agency responsible for ensuring New Zealanders have access to a wide range of affordable medicines.  We're a small organisation (around 130 staff) where your expertise is respected, and you can really make a difference for people. Is that you? Do you want to join us? If so, then please click 'apply'.
