At Northampton General Hospital we provide general acute services and hyper-acute stroke, vascular and renal services to people living in Northamptonshire. As well as this we are an accredited cancer centre and provide cancer services to a wider population of Northamptonshire and parts of Buckinghamshire.

We are proud to be the first hospital in the UK to have obtained Pathway to Excellence® designated accreditation from the American nurses credentialing centre (ANCC).

We celebrate staff achievements and value the importance of working as one big team. That’s why we talk about TeamNGH. It’s all about working together to provide the best possible care for our patients and supporting each other to grow and develop our skills. We are driven to helping you to be the best you can be.

Apply today and join the largest family in Northamptonshire.

We are looking for someone motivated and enthusiastic to help support our very busy dispensary department.

We are in exciting times of change within our department. Our main objective is to increase our presence on the wards and help the hospital to give patients the best care possible. ATO’s are key to this as they are a key function of the dispensary, to ensure timely discharge by getting patients prescriptions dispensed to them in an efficient way. This allows ward based staff to concentrate on the ward based duties.

The focus is to accurately perform (under the supervision of qualified staff) a range of tasks in the Dispensary, which do not require the knowledge, skills and training of a qualified Pharmacy Technician.

The 100+ staff works towards providing services in many aspects of Pharmacy including Aseptic Dispensing, Quality Assurance, Medicines Management and involvement with Clinical Trials. The successful candidate will join the Dispensary team at Northampton General Hospital, where we have an excellent Technician-led dispensary. We have a robotic dispensing system which allows us to dispense efficiently and accurately.

If you have a Boots or NPA dispensing qualification or you have previous Pharmacy experience then this post will help you develop further in your career.

If you are enthusiastic, self-motivated, committed and keen to develop your skills further then we would like to hear from you.
