Rotational Clinical Pharmacist – AfC band 7
19 Month Fixed-Term Contract

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 for a fixed-term of nineteen months, whilst the existing postholder is seconded to our Trust’s Electronic Health Record System (EHRS) implementation project.

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.
