Paving your Way
to a Better Future!
When I joined Firza back in November 2019, I was really impressed not only by how lovely everyone was but with the level of support they provided. The ‘Firza family’ works really well together to achieve the best results. This continues to be the case over a year later, contributing to an enjoyable working environment.

I have always worked in community pharmacy and decided to further my career as a pharmacy technician. I love working at Firza, as it provides me with a platform to become involved in new and diverse challenges. Firza has given me visibility to all sorts of possibilities within my job remit. My work at Firza also brings flexibility which is fantastic being a parent of a young child.

Our motto is “whatever it takes” and I love how we work as a family to make sure we meet our targets! I cannot wait to develop further with this amazing company!

The opportunity to join an organisation that incorporates technology to provide primary care services across the country was a real draw for me when applying for Firza. It has not disappointed! Great people and a pleasure to be a part of the team.

Stephen and Asim’s innovative and forward thinking vision on how to integrate digital health with the emerging role of clinical pharmacists in primary care is what attracted me to Firza. What I love about working at Firza is how we are constantly striving to improve the way we do things. Most importantly, Firza is about supporting our pharmacists to reach their full potential which in turn allows us as an organisation to excel above and beyond expectations.
I joined Firza at the very beginning of its journey and I am so proud of how the company has evolved and went from strength to strength. Innovation and a “whatever it takes” attitude underpins the Firza way. Our teams share this mindset, making it a great place to work. We value what each individual brings to their role and this is a big part of our success in meeting our clients service needs.

I had heard of Firza due to it’s reputation in primary care but never imagined having the opportunity to work as part of the Firza family. Working among such positive minded people has been a pleasure. The team supports each other on issues which are clinical, non-clinical and even personal. I definitely see why the Firza team is called the “Firza family” and I hope to support Firza and benefit from the company for many years to come.
Shoaib PCN Lead Pharmacist
Working at Firza has been a welcome challenge. The team aspect is unusually genuine and I feel like at the end of each day I have made a difference not only for my work colleagues, but more importantly for patient care.

I joined Firza in November 2019. It was a great opportunity and enabled me to work suitable hours around my son. From day one, I felt the warmth & friendliness from my new ‘Firza Family’ and before long, was promoted to Service Implementation Manager which I love. It involves a lot of interaction between various surgeries and also with my colleagues. Firza is a fantastic company that I am extremely proud to be a part of.
KarenService Implementation Manager
November 2014, Two entrepreneurial pharmacists embarked on a journey together to form what is now called Firza, the successful partnership that developed from (Stephen) Foster and (Asim) Mirza. A light bulb moment was born from sharing many years of clinical experience and witnessing GP services being at breaking point. Realising very quickly that if something wasn’t done soon to support GPs, then the PCN network could very well collapse. Since then, we have organically grown predominantly through word of mouth to a family of over 120 fledglings.
Our Mission – Making Healthcare Better – Together! We bridge the gap for GPs, by streamlining the triad of care that exists between patients, GPs and pharmacists within GP surgeries, care homes and prison services. We make their pharmacist-type workload lighter by taking these jobs off their hands.
By letting our pharmacists handle medicines management, the GP’s workload is sure to lighten. Our own medication experts have more specialised knowledge to handle these jobs, freeing up GP time to allow them to spend more quality time where it is needed such as for more complex patients.
We are committed to developing and delivering a gold standard primary healthcare service. While Firza is committed to ensuring we have the right people to operate our cog, we are just as passionate to bed them into our truly welcoming and innovative family. Yes, we are a business and always looking to grow, but our foundations are built with people at the heart of everything that we do. If you have the talent and are passionate, then there is no limit to what we can achieve together.
The Firza culture has a strong responsibility to your wellbeing. We are caring, considerate and transparent. We also pride ourselves in providing a healthy work-life balance for all our employees.

We provide a platform to enable you to grow and develop your own skills, supporting you on your journey every bit of the way. Our family’s wellbeing is also critical to us too to allow them to perform to the best of their ability. We nurture their personal development in parallel to their professional growth.
