An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic MMA to develop their skills by providing Pharmacy Services to HIV positive and Infectious Diseases patients.

You will predominantly be based in The Jarvis Pharmacy Satellite (LRI) which is located in the Jarvis Clinic and provides a full pharmaceutical service to 1350+ HIV positive patients and other patients seen in the Infectious Diseases Clinic.

The Jarvis Pharmacy team are a small and friendly team who are considered an integral part of the wider Infectious Diseases team.

The majority of dispensing is out-sourced to an external pharmacy provider and home delivery provider. Part of your role will be to review clinic lists and process prescriptions to the out-sourced company. As part of ensuring a seamless service, you will be involved in preparing medications for the clinics and may be involved in a small amount of dispensing in the satellite. In order to meet the high demand from the clinic, exceptional organisation and time management skills are essential for a successful candidate.

You will also be given the opportunity to check and replenish stock on the Infectious Diseases ward and in the provision of post-exposure prophylaxis packs in A&E, whereby you will be able to gain an understanding of the services we provide in other areas of the hospital.

The successful applicant will need excellent communication and team working skills, as you will speak to different members of the clinical team on a daily basis. An awareness of the importance of patient confidentiality is essential.
