Are you looking to build on your clinical knowledge and leadership skills in one of the biggest Trusts in the country?

If so, we have the ideal opportunity for you to further your personal and professional development. We have an exciting post split 50:50 between Emergency and Specialist Medicine and the Pharmacy Professional Development Team.

Our band 7 pharmacists are a key part of our Pharmacy and Clinical teams integral to delivering high quality, patient focussed medicines optimisation across the Trust. In your role you will utilise your clinical experience by providing daily clinical pharmacy services to specified wards. You will also be assisting with the training and development of mainly pre-registration and junior pharmacists and supporting the improvement of the services.

Relevant post registration experience in hospital pharmacy, the demonstration of good communication skills and sound current clinical knowledge will be essential to being effective in the roles. You will have completed or be nearing completion of a post graduate clinical pharmacy diploma.

The post holder will be supported by the multidisciplinary team as we expand the current range of services and they will help maintain the high standard of services that are already provided. There is an ever growing number of Independent Prescribers in the teams and a strong desire to increase these numbers further so that responsibility for prescribing becomes integral to a pharmacist’s roles.

We have well established links with our whole multidisciplinary teams and work together to achieve optimal care for our patients. UHL Pharmacy is an innovative service, with recent service developments including the introduction of electronic prescribing across areas of the Trust, an innovative electronic handover tool and automated ward based drug management systems across a number of areas.

Our service is provided by a team of Assistants, Pharmacy Technicians and Pharmacists and supported by satellite pharmacies. Extended hours services are supported by a large team of junior pharmacists based on our wards and dispensaries, including some 7 day ward based services. Post holders will be expected to contribute to departmental evening, out of hours and weekend duties as per current rotas.
