At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH, and stay at UCLH; all of our staff have been involved in developing our values.

We believe that UCLH is a better place for patients and staff alike. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

UCLH has two major strategic projects underway. On Grafton Way, we are building a facility which will be home to one of only two high energy NHS proton beam therapy centres, Europe’s largest centre for the treatment of blood disorders and a hyper modern surgery service.  Close by on Huntley Street we are developing the new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals. Replacing the current hospitals on Grays’ Inn Road, this development will mean we can provide multidisciplinary care to our dental and ENT patients in a modern environment. Our Grafton Way facility is due to open in 2020, with Huntley Street opening in 2019.

NHS staff survey results from 2016, UCLH has been named one of the ten best performing non-specialist trusts against the following statement: “If a friend of relative needed treatment I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation”.

We are looking for a bright and enthusiastic pharmacist, with the motivation to develop their clinical knowledge and skills in practice, to join our development programme for clinical pharmacists.

The programme includes year long rotations through areas such as medicine, gastroenterology, urology, thoracic surgery, critical care, neurosciences, hyperacute stroke, HIV and sexual health, and women’s health including neonates. Many of the rotations are centred around tertiary services, and offer exposure and experience of cutting edge practice in rapidly developing diagnostic and therapeutic areas, which require continually evolving approaches to medicines management issues.

You will also be introduced to core directorate activities such as reporting and analysis of medicines expenditure, budget planning for tariff-excluded high cost drugs, project management, clinical governance activities, and more general management and leadership roles.

We are closely involved with the Joint Programme Board’s Advanced Practice Programme, and are gradually implementing key concepts including development of strong leaders within the pharmacy workforce. We also have an established development programme for band 7 clinical pharmacists, based around fortnightly educational meetings.

With a broad base of general and specific clinical experience, along with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, you will also contribute towards the clinical supervision of multi-professional undergraduate students and the mentorship of pre-registration and postgraduate diploma students. You will also provide support for the implementation of general clinical pharmacy initiatives, and participate in audit and clinical research projects.
