An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated band 7 pharmacist to join the pharmacy team at Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust on a permanent basis.   The role will be split 50/50 between outpatient dispensary and clinical services.  The successful candidate will be able to develop a rewarding career in paediatrics as they complete a variety of clinical rotations; have opportunities to enhance their leadership skills by supporting and developing the service we offer to patients and their families in our busy out-patient dispensary and mentoring more junior pharmacists or deputising for Senior Pharmacists. Alder Hey is a stand-alone paediatric hospital located on the outskirts of Liverpool with a national reputation for excellence.  It recently featured in the award-winning BBC documentary “Hospital”.
